Read from January 27 to 30, 2011

The tale of Sarah and Tobias from the book of Tobit in the bible is retold in a story set during the depression with a bit of native American lore added. It's about a man raised in a conservative Baptist home in Minnesota whose preacher father commits acts that he admonishes others for who is sent to his fathers family in Texas for buried treasure to save his family from poverty. The treasure he finds is the extended family he never knew, his identity, and love. It's a quick coming of age story that is quite satisfying.
