Product Description


?A masterful novel about crime, our need for atonement, the harsh price of loyalty and the search for family love, powerful and engrossing.? ? DAVID ADAMS RICHARDS

() --This text refers to an out of print or unavailable edition of this title.


“A masterful novel about crime, our need for atonement, the harsh price of loyalty and the search for family love, powerful and engrossing.”
David Adams Richards
“Utterly convincing and compelling – a novel with immense depth of place, peopled with characters trying to forgive those who seek redemption. Matt Lennox has made a moving, moral and true book.” Michael Winter
“Matt Lennox is a forceful and vigorous new voice on the Canadian literary scene. With intelligence and marvellous assurance, in prose direct yet incantatory, he peels open lives in small-town Ontario.  He’s a born storyteller who, once he gets you in his grip, won’t let you go.” Catherine Bush

Format: Hardcover
Telling a good story requires more than just details, and the author has understood that well. The scene, the characters, everything about the story- it isn't just being told to the reader, it's being felt by the reader. I want to say that it's an emotional read, but I'm not implying that this is a book about romance, or some other visible, active emotion. The emotions in this story are the rest of the spectrum- the parts the characters don't really understand about themselves, but experience anyways. Reading it is an odd experience- knowing and feeling these things the characters are experiencing, but not really understanding it yourself either.

It's not a book you can just sit down and read in an afternoon. Rather, it's one you'll read for an hour, then spend a while unable to sleep while you wrestle with demons that fictional people have. It sticks with you, which in my mind marks it as well worth reading.

HASH(0xa60bd180) out of 5 stars Great read Aug. 13 2012
By Amazon Customer - Published on
Format: Hardcover
A slightly slow start but throughout the book I was always wondering about another piece to the puzzle of this novel and putting it all together, which I enjoyed. As things came together it lead to a very well done ending.
