BookPage Reviews

This national bestseller, set in 1960s Minnesota, follows the adventures of the unconventional Land family. Reuben, who narrates the story, is 11 when his older brother Davy kills three teenage intruders. Davy is jailed but soon escapes, leading Reuben, their brainy sister Swede and their good-hearted father Jeremiah on an unforgettable chase across the wilds of the Midwest. It's a remarkable journey marked by humor, loyalty and, in the end, redemption. Enger's lyrical language, spirited allusions to old-time outlaws and provocative biblical references (Mr. Land, according to Reuben, has the power to perform miracles) make this a wonderfully accomplished first novel. A reading group guide is available at www.groveatlantic.com.
