The Virgin of Small Plains by Nancy Pickard. It's sort of a murder mystery that takes place in fictional small town Kansas. Out in a blizzard in 1987 a teenage boy finds the murdered body of a girl. The next day his best friend's parents ship the best friend out of town, leaving behind his childhood sweetheart. Somehow, the three teenage best friends' dads are involved.

Reading, The Archer's Tale by Bernard Cornwell, bearded gnome, this would appeal to you. Takes place in 1342-4 Thomas of Hookton, master of the great English Long bow goes to fight against the French for King Edward. Wonderful story of all his adventures in France.
