That's pretty funny. I just read Peace and two of the things I am  
really stuck on about it are the fallen tree at the beginning of the  
book, and the part where Alden and Margaret are in the barn looking  
for the egg and Margaret mentions that it has the face of Jesus on  
it, and is Alden worried about it being under a hen because he is  
afraid it might hatch. :)
