    From here on out, "Peace Like a River" mostly traces the Lands' travails along the inevitable path to the lost son. There are myriad problems with this approach, the chief being that Davy never really comes alive as a character or seems particularly worthy of this dogged pursuit, beyond the obvious motivation of blood ties. He's a symbol, stolid and ineffable, and he remains remote throughout. His sole function seems to be to demonstrate the principles of fate; or, as Reuben puts it, "History was built into Davy so thoroughly he could never see how it owned him."
