About Grace by Anthony Doerr

David has dreams that are premonitions of disasters, but the timing of the upcoming disaster is mysterious. He has a dream that his newborn daughter will drown in his arms during a flood, so he flees and the rest of his life is a train wreck. Very fine writing, especially contrasting life in the Caribbean and in Alaska. The view of the physical world (snow, insects, clouds, etc) is exceptional.

  1. I loved this book! The descriptions of the environment in both the Caribbean and Alaska are amazing. The way in which the ‘dreams’ of David influence his life and his relationships is so moving. We read this in our book club and everyone was intrigued.
