For those who loved Krueger’s bestseller, Ordinary Grace, the long wait for the sequel is finally over. It begins in 1932, at the Lincoln School in Minnesota, harsh “home” to hundreds of Native American children, forcibly separated from their parents, to be “educated.” It is also home to orphans Odie and Albert O’Banion, who escape in a canoe along with their best friend Mose and a brokenhearted little girl named Emmy. Together they journey into the unknown seeking a place to call home, and along the way cross paths with others who are adrift: struggling farmers, traveling faith healers, displaced families, and lost souls of all kinds. An enthralling, big-hearted epic, This Tender Land reminds us how the magnificent American landscape connects us all, haunts our dreams, and makes us whole. Cost: $15
