Do you know when Opening day of hunting season is?

The Grace That Keeps This World
The Grace That Keeps This World

By: Tom Bailey

Genre:  Adult Fiction

Pages: 303

Published: 2006

Read: May

4 out of 5

This book was a suggested One Book One Community book. I didn't feel it would be a good choice for my community, however I choose it for my book club. I really enjoyed the story and it has several good discussion points.  It is based in a small hunting community in upstate New York, which was interesting to me as my dad used to hunt a lot and I remember him preparing for opening day of the hunting season. If you aren't familiar with hunting season (or against hunting) this is probably not a great book for you. I felt it was well written and showed how the hunting season can dictate a family's life and the community as a whole. My favorite aspect was that the novel was written from the perspectives of different community members which gives the reader several completely different insights on the story.
