When Brother's dad is shipped off to Ira along with the rest of his reserve unit Brother must help his grandparents k I'm stubbornly giving this a 4th star though I'm not sure how many kids will be attracted to or like this uiet tale of a 12 year old boy growing up on a modern day ranch in Oregon Ignatius called Brother by one and all is the youngest of 5 motherless boys who live with their father and grandparents on a cattle and sheep ranch At the beginning of the story their father is shipping out along with many of their neighbors to a tour of duty in Ira The oldest 4 boys are variously on their own Army base at college or at a boarding high school 50 miles away That leaves Brother and his grandparents to run the ranch The book gives enough of a look at the difficulty of this life without weighing it down An adult will see the crisis at the end coming a mile away but children will not What I liked most about the book is the abiding and strong sense of faith and duty that form the center of the book and a depiction of death that is neither trivializing or fearful Brother and his family are unapologetically religious without being dogmatic and their faith is central in their lives A dignified and warm look at conservative westerners A warning there is a fairly graphic description of Brother assisting at the birth of a calf that might upset the woozier child

Heart of a ShepherdEep the ranch going He’s determined to maintain it just as his father left it in the hope that doing so will ensure This is a uiet sensitive book about a 12 year old boy who takes on some new responsibilities when his father is shipped off to Ira It has a strong sense of family and a VERY strong sense of placeIt also does a great job of talking about spirituality in a very un didactic way I think rural kids especially would love seeing themselves in a book like this one
