Pat Wilson of Pelican BookstoreEvery once in a while an author publishes a book that stands above all the rest. Some notable books:

Peace Like a River written by Leif Enger in 2002 about a sickly 11-year-old boy.

Cutting for Stone by Abraham Verghese in 2010 about a doctor in Ethiopia.

All the Light We Cannot See by Anthony Doerr, a story of World War II in France.

What makes these books outstanding is the experience and the journey these magical writers take us on.

These novels are not popular fiction, these are handcrafted miracles, given to the readers of the world and are among my favorites ever written.
