The Buffalo Soldier by Chris Bohjalian

The Buffalo Soldier by Chris Bohjalian (2002)
I was intrigued by the basic premise of this book, about a couple who tragically lose their twin daughters in a flood, then several years later decide to become foster parents. They take in a 10-year-old African American boy named Alfred. This heartwarming story reveals how this little boy affects the lives of everyone he meets. One of the highlights of the story is how an endearing friendship develops between Alfred and an elderly, retired neighbor. It shows how anyone, no matter what age, can bring hope and encouragement into another person’s life.
