    This Tender Land- William Kent Krueger

    If you enjoy Greg Iles and Jeffrey Archer you will like this story of orphan children escaping their awful home and paddling down a long series of rivers. They meet all kinds of unusual people and have numerous interesting adventures. It reads too quickly.

    I am noting this suggestion as you have named two of my favorite authors in your post.

    krueger has become one of my all time favorites.his cork occonnor series is great and once you start one you just dont want to put it down. the greg iles and archer comparison is spot on. i think it is a tribute to his talent that with the occonnor series he has been able to write 17 books with the same character in each and each one is better than thye last!! from someone who reads 100 books a year for entertainment this is a winner!!

    How kind of you. Any excuse for friends and fellow readers to gather sounds like fun. How about after the Select fete?
