Join the Orem Library Book Club as they read and discuss Leif Enger’s bestselling debut novel, Peace Like a River. Published in 2001, the novel takes place in rural Minnesota in 1962 and is narrated by Reuben Land, an 11-year-old with asthma and an unusual family, including his father, Jeremiah, a school janitor and a man of deep faith whom Reuben has seen perform miracles. The family is swept up in a journey of faith, love, and self-discovery as they travel through the Badlands in search of Reuben’s older brother, who has fled a controversial murder charge. Copies are available to check out at the main floor general reference desk.
