When Reuben Land's older brother Davy kills two marauders who have come to harm the family, the town is divided between those who see him as a hero and those who see him as a cold-blooded murderer. On the morning of the trial, Davy escapes and his family sets out in search of him. With Jeremiah at the helm, the family covers territory far more glorious than even the Badlands. By the time the journey is over, they will have traversed boundaries of a different nature entirely. Set in the 1960s and marked by a soul-expanding sense of place, Peace Like a River is a heroic quest, a tragedy, a romance, and a heartfelt meditation on the possibility of magic in the everyday world

Set in the early '60s in Minnesota. Dead for 10 minutes before his father orders him to breathe in the name of the living God, Reuben Land is living proof that the world is full of miracles. From the vantage point of adulthood, Reuben tells how his father rescued his brother Davy's girlfriend from two attackers, how that led to Davy being jailed for murder and how, once Davy escapes and heads south for the Badlands of North Dakota, 12-year-old Reuben, his younger sister Swede and their janitor father light out after him. But the FBI is following Davy as well, and Reuben has a part to play in the finale of that chase, just as he had a part to play in his brother's trial
