From the celebrated author of The River Why (Book-It, 2010), comes an uplifting tale that spans the middle decades of the 20th century. Through the eyes of the brothers of the title, Duncan examines the lives of the Chance family in Camas, Washington through the interplay of faith and spirituality, war and politics, family, baseball, and love. Book-It is pleased to present The Brothers K in a two-part, epic telling.
