Synopsis:

Eleven-year-old asthmatic Reuben Land chronicles the Land family's odyssey in search of Reuben's older brother, Davy, who has escaped from jail before he can stand trial for the killing of two marauders who came to their Minnesota farm to harm the family. A first novel.


Review:

"[A]s clichéd as [Enger's] basic enterprise is, he manages to infuse sections of this novel with some surprisingly lively writing and deftly turned sentences. But ultimately the book suffers from a surplus of pretension...and a dearth of surprises. Enger's world, full of simple pleasures and populated by deep-thinking naïfs, seems unlikely to have ever existed, in this century or any other."

Katherine Dieckmann, New York Times Book Review, 09/09/2001

Review:

"Enger writes on the precarious edge of traditionalism. He veers toward sentimentality, but the strength of his story and characters keeps his novel real....The miracle of PEACE LIKE A RIVER is the irresistibility of a well-told tale: you won't believe it, but this is what happened."

C. K. Hubbuch, Ruminator Review, Fall 2001

Book Description: Pgw, United States, 2001. Hardback. Book Condition: New. 237 x 161 mm. Brand New Book. Hailed as one of the year s top five novels by Time, and selected as one of the best books of the year by nearly all major newspapers, national bestseller Peace Like a River captured the hearts of a nation in need of comfort. A rich mixture of adventure, tragedy, and healing, Peace Like a River is a collage of legends from sources sacred and profane -- from the Old Testament to the Old West, from the Gospels to police dramas (Ron Charles, The Christian Science Monitor).In lyrical, openhearted prose (Michael Glitz, The New York Post), Enger tells the story of eleven-year-old Reuben Land, an asthmatic boy who has reason to believe in miracles. Along with his sister and father, Reuben finds himself on a cross-country search for his outlaw older brother who has been controversially charged with murder. Their journey is touched by serendipity and the kindness of strangers, and its remarkable conclusion shows how family, love, and faith can stand up to the most terrifying of enemies, the most tragic of fates. Leif Enger s miraculous (Valerie Ryan, The Seattle Times) novel is a perfect book for an anxious time, a book of great literary merit that nonetheless restores readers faith in the kindness of stories (Marta Salij, Detroit Free Press).
