This is the only novel ever discussed on the Tim Danahey Show. It was named an Editor’s Choice by the New York Times, the Wall Street Journal, and OPRAH. It is a fascinating mystery set in an 1840s Shaker commune in rural America. There are fascinating character arcs, multiple sub-plots, and vivid writing. The book is reminiscent of a Dickens-era story with an abusive father, a possible arson, a family on the run, a religious refuge, and conniving people looking to wrangle the land from its true owners. ALmost all of my reading is non-fiction. When I read fiction, I generally stay with the classics. “The Visionist” is a great contemporary novel. Listen why.
