Edenland – Book Review

Edenland

Edenland is the evocative title of an evocative novel set in the early days of the US Civil War. Its story plunges us into the Great Dismal Swamp that straddles Virginia and North Carolina, and never quite allows us to escape the treacherous waters that threaten to engulf its protagonists.

The Great Dismal and other swamps were places where runaway slaves could hide from their pursuers. Harriet Beecher Stowe’s second novel, after Uncle Tom’s Cabin, was Dred: A Tale of the Great Dismal Swamp (1856). Thus, the literary and historical sources of Edenland flow across the years in currents swift, deep and wide.

The Grand – Book Review

The Grand

I rate this book 4 out of 4 stars.

The story is explained in several perspective angles and then brought together for the final reveal. I found this approach to add more depth and dimension to the story.

The Grand begins with Dean Wister, a federal agent that has lost his wife, Sara, through cancer. Before she passes away, she asks Dean if they could go to their favorite place, the meadow, once she is feeling better. Unfortunately, she passes away and does not make it. Dean takes time off and goes to the meadow (located in Teton), in her loving memory.
