Books and Bagels

The Books and Bagels book group will discuss Larose by Louise Erdrich (Harper, $15.99). North Dakota, 1999. Landreaux stalks a deer but accidentally kills his neighbor's five-year-old son, Dusty. The youngest child of his best friend, Pete Ravich, Dusty was best friends with Landreaux's five-year-old son, LaRose. Following an ancient means of retribution, Landreaux and his wife Emmaline will give LaRose to the grieving Peter and Nola.

LaRose is quickly absorbed into his new family. Gradually he is allowed shared visits with his birth family, whose sorrow mirrors the Raviches' own. As the years pass, LaRose becomes the linchpin linking the Irons and the Raviches, and eventually their mutual pain begins to heal. But when a vengeful man with a long-standing grudge against Landreaux begins raising trouble, he threatens the tenuous peace that has kept these two fragile families whole.
