by Leif Enger
This is a lovely, lyrical book filled with interesting, mysterious characters. It conveys a real feel of an older time. It reads like an old western yet has a modern touch, and includes adventure, outlaws and lawmen along with an artist and a writer. I liked this book even more than Peace Like A River, Enger's other novel and a previous One Book One Denver selection. In the end I think this book is about love, redemption and finding one's true path in life.
