If you do not believe in destiny, how do you explain this?: In the last month, and specifically while on vacation, I managed to pick up three books by two different authors all set in rural farming communities in Northern Canada (probably Ontario or Quebec). Reviews will follow for Mary Larson's Crow Lake (her first novel) and The Other Side of the Bridge and for Stef Penney's The Tenderness of Wolves (her first novel). Want more? Both authors live in the United Kingdom.
Both authors capture time and place very well and create universal themes with interesting characters. Check out the reviews.
