This Tender Land

 

Author: William Kent Krueger

Publisher: Altria Books

Year: 2020

📖 𝗛𝗮𝗽𝗽𝘆 𝗦𝘂𝗻𝗱𝗮𝘆! 📖

I’m probably 𝐧𝐨𝐭 the last person in the world to read This Tender Land, but it’s been around long enough that a full review from me isn’t needed. 

I really enjoyed this hero’s journey featuring four unforgettable characters. Odie is an unlikely hero with a big heart. His screw-ups turn into miracles for the people he tries to help. I was surprised at the fantastical turn the story took regarding Emmy. I’m not usually a fan of magical realism, but the whole story was a magical trip and I thought it did fit in seamlessly with the story. 

This was a ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️ read for me and it was a nice change of pace reading from me. Thanks to @thereadingteapot and @rjs.readingnook for the buddy read and discussion! 

QOTD: what’s your most recent five star read? 

Mine is Stephen King’s Fairy Tale by Stephen King. The audiobook is excellent.
