Author: William Kent Krueger

I enjoyed being drawn into the life of this young boy at a certain place and time as he ascertains the events and circumstances around him. We judge his family, friends and neighbors with the information he doles out to us. But we also grow in knowledge whilst he grows in knowledge. The sermon that his minister/father does after a relative's death is poignant. This sweet book values faith and family but not in a preachy way. It affirms that life is a struggle for everyone and that little acts of goodness makes it bearable, even wonderful!
