Quiet Freedom Paperback – March 24, 2016
"Warlight" by Michael Ondaatje
A dramatic coming-of-age story set in the decade after World War II, "Warlight" is the mesmerizing new novel from the best-selling author of "The English Patient." Learn more
Peace writes in a simple yet elegant prose style, frequently mixing in facts and figures to keep the reader abreast of the situation's real-life stakes: "A single polar bear's natural territory can be hundreds of square miles....A typical zoo enclosure for a polar bear can be up to eighty million times smaller than a wild bear's home range." But these didactic flourishes, along with the meticulous documentation of Amanda's journey...sometimes make the work read more like a travel memoir than a fictional account...Amanda's quest is compelling nevertheless: an adventure at the top of the world that feels relevant to the life of every reader -- and to the planet as a whole. -- Kirkus Reviews
About the Author
W.C. Peace has traveled and lived all over our world. He lives in the American Pacific Northwest, but like a wide-ranging wild polar bear, prefers to call the entire planet, home.
