Peace Like a River

Peace Like a River - Leif Enger This reads, in part, like a underdog story. However, it's not drab and dour, but of taking one on the chin. It's about frontier life in 1960s Minnesota. There's a secondary, and mini, story in there, too -- written in verse. Some of the prose was quite lyrical, too. I enjoyed this read, as it showcased a time in history where life was not as easy, but was simpler.
