I picked up this copy from The Book Thing of Baltimore, Inc. located in downtown Baltimore, Maryland. The Book Thing is a warehouse of free books that has become a local fixture in the community. The premise is simple. You take as many books as you like, and you can donate as many books as you like. It has become a place for us bookcrossers to congregate often.

10 out of 10

Here are my thoughts on the book:


Peace like a River is a wonderful novel. Of the many books I've read this year, it is my favorite. The plot is quick to grab you. The characters are well-developed and I was quickly drawn into caring about them. In fact, I shed a tear over them. It is a beautifully written story.

The book is tagged Christian fiction, and the father is very religious, but the book will appeal to all who read it.

Here is the book description from the publisher:

To the list of great American child narrators that includes Huck Finn and Scout Finch; let us now add Reuben "Rube" Land, the asthmatic 11-year-old boy at the center of Leif Enger's remarkable first novel, Peace like a River. Rube recalls the events of his childhood, in small-town Minnesota circa 1962, in a voice that perfectly captures the poetic, verbal stoicism of the northern Great Plains. "Here's what I saw," Rube warns his readers. "Here's how it went. Make of it what you will." And Rube sees plenty.
