Satisfying, Sad to have it end April 3 2014
By Katrina De Man - Published on
Format: Paperback
Heron River is a lovely, stark, quietly-paced novel with genuine characters and a wonderfully woven story. The characters in this book face the reality of their pasts, feel it's present impact and step forward into a deliberate future. Mid-way into the story, I found myself fully immersed in wanting to know how each storyline would resolve while not wanting it to end. I cared for Cook's characters and, weeks later, find the odd awareness that I am thinking of them and that I would love to know what they are doing "now". An excellent addition to the Canadian lit section of your home library.
