Peace Like A River
Reuben Land grows up in the midwestern plains witnessing miracles; in fact, his very existence is a miracle, since he was born “dead.” His father, Jeremiah, believes he has been touched by God and virtually glows from it. The Land family, a father raising three children, leads a tranquil life amid miracles, until two town bullies break into their home. Eldest son, Davey, kills the intruders. His trial for manslaughter, escape from jail, and the family's ensuing adventure reveal an amazing story of tragedy, heroism and love. Peace Like A River is a brilliant and magical first novel, a must read for its sweet humor and heartfelt inspiration.
