Virgil Wander is like a sweet lazy river where characters drift quietly together to share a late cool evening before drifting away. The language and portrait that Enger paints of this sleepy but stoic little Minnesota town are so quiet and gentle that when something sinister or sad happens it catches you off guard. The enduring spirit of this Midwestern town and its inhabitants will steal your heart. They have seen good times and bad but somehow they pull themselves up or each other, and keep plugging along. Endearing characters in the spirit of Fannie Flagg and Fredrik Backman, Virgil and the townspeople of Greenstone will stay in your heart. I really loved these people and the town and wish it was available for vacation rentals.
