About the Author
Praise For The Grace That Keeps This World…
“Acompelling first novel about love and rivalry in the adirondacks builds toward a shattering conclusion.” —People
“Like some modern-day version of a Greek tragedy . . . a chorus of narrators . . . moves this story . . . slowly and beautifully [toward] an indelible disaster. . . . This is, after all, a story about a man forced to expand his moral imagination, and in the end it inspires the same sympathy from us.” —Washington Post Book World
“A beautifully drawn, tragic novel about fathers and sons—and the bonds of community.” —Atlanta Journal Constitution
