From the Publisher

SO BRAVE, YOUNG, AND HANDSOME VIRGIL WANDER
“A sharp and brainy redemption tale.” —Los Angeles Times “Brings out the charm and downright strangeness of the defiantly normal.” ―Wall Street Journal

Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for

New York Times Bestseller

"Leif Enger ... is a natural-born storyteller, and his novel moves in a current that can be poetic and slow or as tumultuous as whitewater rapids. This novel has the power to convince that, despite sorrow, human experience is a miracle of ordinary truth and extraordinary love." -Atlanta Journal-Constitution

"A rich mixture of adventure, tragedy, and healing ... a journey you simply must not miss." -Christian Science Monitor

"What allows Peace Like a River to transcend any limitations of belief and genre is its broad, sagacious humanity ... There is magic here, none more potent than Enger's prose."-Newsday

Peace Like a River serves as a reminder of why we read fiction to begin with.” ―San Francisco Chronicle

“If you like a ripping good story told in robust prose that gives you goose bumps, latch onto this book – more than a novel of miracles, it is truly a miraculous novel.” ―The Seattle Times

“You don’t see novels like this one very often. Peace Like a River reminds a reader of Kent Haruf’s Plainsong or even Norman MacLean’s A River Runs Through It. It’s got that pure American loss of innocence theme, that belief in and fascination with miracles, that insistence on the goodness of men outside of the law.” ―Los Angeles Times Book Review

“A compelling blend of traditional and artfully offbeat storytelling . . . a miracle well worth witnessing . . . Grade: A.”―Boston Globe

“If ever there was a time for a novel of faith and redemption–a quiet book of old-fashioned verities–this is it. ―New York Post

About the Author

Leif Enger was raised in Osakis, Minnesota, and worked as a reporter and producer for Minnesota Public Radio for nearly twenty years. He lives on a farm in Minnesota with his wife and two sons.
