Mink River by Brian Doyle
Mink River

I married an Oregonian from the south coast, who worked on a gyppo logging crew through college and whose stepfather was a commercial fisherman. Against that background, the characters in this book felt like old friends. But even without that, the novel is a thoroughly charming and engrossing read. I didn't want to put the book down. It's the first time in years that I've gasped aloud as I've read, worried about the welfare of the people who inhabit the pages, cried as the characters suffered through life changes, and been engaged by the magic of the story. Thank you so much for a book that ranks among my top 10!
