Reviews

"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
