A Thin Place

I did not know what to expect when I picked up this book. A Thin Place is an absolutely beautiful and moving novel. The characters are rich and full of life and the story has heart with real emotion and feeling. I have not felt so invested in characters as I was with this novel in a very long time. It is well-written, engaging, and entertaining.
None of this should be a surprise as the events of the novel a roughly based on the life of the author. However, I didn’t realize that until finishing the novel and reading more about it (I hate even the tiniest spoilers so I don’t always read much about a book before reading it). Mr. Weiskircher imbues this novel with such life and energy that you won’t be able to put it down.
A Thin Place is the story of a boy, a dog, and family. It is about love, heartbreak, death, life, and treasuring relationships. It is an unusual novel in that the plot is not as goal-oriented as many stories are. It’s a book that just brings you along with the story and you don’t want to leave the world lived, and then recreated, by Mr. Weiskircher in this novel.
If you love books about life and relationships this is a great book. It is deeply engaging and makes you think about what you could be doing to living your own life more and treasuring the relationships you have with the people around you. I highly recommend this novel.
