Deep River, because of the size. He needs all seven hundred pages to pull us into the lives of determined people, living in rough places, working hard, and building families and communities. Three siblings leave Finland and settle in southern Washington state at the end of the nineteenth century. Marlantes describes logging, salmon fishing, and conflict between workers and owners. We spend decades with these siblings and a growing cast of characters facing a range of life events and challenges that propel the narrative. Fans of historical fiction that’s well-written are those readers most likely to enjoy this moving American story. Rating: Five-star (I love it) Click here to purchase Deep River from amazon.com.
