I don't really read fiction very often. I get my fiction from movies, t.v., and whatever my 4-year-old son says :)
But, I was recommended this book: "Peace like a River" by Leif Enger. It was written about 8 years ago.
It is absolutely fantastic, a page turner, stirs the heart, makes you long for bigger things in life, etc. . . I absolutely recommend it.
(Especially for those of you addicted to the teen trash genre, or as I like to call it:
"Pretty Vampires with Problems")
