God’s Kingdom by Howard Frank Mosher


Fourteen-year-old Jim Kinneson is a budding writer and a keen observer of life as it unfolds in northeast Vermont during the 1950s. Nature, community relationships, and family history capture his interest.

Though Jim abhors violence of any kind, he is forced to come to terms with his ancestors’ crimes. In an area where different ethnic groups—white, Native American, escaped slaves, and French Canadians—converged and often clashed, Jim “was more aware than ever that he dwelt in no peaceable kingdom.” Yet, he learns that “out of the atrocities, out of the murders and hatred that made not a particle of sense,” love had flourished to create a unique family.

Mosher is a master storyteller who weaves together themes of justice, the nature of evil, and the power of love in this affecting novel for adults. (St. Martin’s Press)
