I did not read Peace Like a River, but have only heard positive comments, so I had hoped this second novel of Enger would be a winner. Apparently it is for others, but I didn't find anything all that good or all that bad about it. I didn't like the plot or the characters, but I didn't dislike them either. Everything just seemed to be okay. Unfortunately, Peace Like a River is going to be pushed down the TBR list, because this read didn't encourage me to pick it up.
