  1. Muggle Not's Reading List - 2019

    32 - Land of Wolves : A Longmire Mystery - Craig Johnson - 3.5/5 - typical Longmire story but yet a very good read. 33. This Tender Land - William Kent Krueger - 4.5/5 - Excellent book that reminds one of Huckleberry Finn and Where the Crawdads Sing in one story. I really enjoyed this book. Story takes place in 1932 featuring 4 kids in ages 6 to about 15. They break out of a school for kids where everyone is treated terribly by a woman they nicknamed The Black Witch. Their journey takes them down a river where they encounter many hardships while The Black Witch keeps tracking them. A Prologue from the book: https://www.amazon.com/This-Tender-Land-William-Krueger-ebook/dp/B010MHAEGA/ref=sr_1_1?keywords=this+tender+land&qid=1573954176&sr=8-1 Reviews: Review Praise for This Tender Land “If you liked Where the Crawdads Sing, you’ll love This Tender Land by best-selling author William Kent Krueger. This story is as big-hearted as they come.“ —Parade Magazine “A picaresque tale of adventure during the Great Depression. Part Grapes of Wrath, part Huckleberry Finn, Krueger’s novel is a journey over inner and outer terrain toward wisdom and freedom.” —Minneapolis Star Tribune “Crafted in exquisitely beautiful prose, this is a story to be treasured – outstanding and unforgettable.” —Historical Novel Review "If you’re among the millions who raced through Where the Crawdads Sing this year and are looking for another expansive, atmospheric American saga, look to the latest from Krueger." —Entertainment Weekly "Long, sprawling, and utterly captivating, readers will eat up every delicious word of it.” —New York Journal of Books "Absorbing and wonderfully-paced, this fictional narrative set against historical truths mesmerizes the reader with its evocations of compassion, courage, and self-discovery. . . THIS TENDER LAND is a gripping, poignant tale swathed in both mythical and mystical overtones." —Bob Drury, New York Times bestselling author of The Heart of Everything That Is "More than a simple journey; it is a deeply satisfying odyssey, a quest in search of self and home. Richly imagined and exceptionally well plotted and written, the novel is, most of all, a compelling, often haunting story that will captivate both adult and young adult readers." —Booklist "Rich with graceful writing and endearing characters...this is a book for the ages." —Denver Post
