Hmm.....how to rate this book.
I had read “This Tender Land” and thought it was probably one of the best books I’d ever read. In comparison, this is a bit of a let-down. This book was more ho-hum, day to day sort of uneventful happenings. Yes, murder and other forms of death are eventful, but the response was fairly subdued. It lacked nerve and all-out emotion (perhaps because one of the main characters was a minister who had to model forgiveness). Yet, William Kent Krueger has to be one of the best authors out there, so it is definitely worth reading and absorbing.
