Newest book review of The Brothers' Keepers:
In 1996, then First Lady Hillary Rodham Clinton popularized the saying that “It Takes a Village to raise a child.” The Brothers’ Keepers, a novel by John H. Paddison & Charles D. Orvik, reminds us that it can also take a village to destroy a child. This heart-wrenching tale of five brothers in depression-era North Dakota calls into question what it means to be a community. It is a story that rings true in these days riddled with headlines of child abuse, abandoned infants, and filicide. The Brothers’ Keepers is a must read for anyone concerned about the welfare of children.
