Winner of Canada's most prestigious award for literature, David Adams Richardspresents his seventh novel--a suspenseful and moving, dark and redemptive, devastating and comic narrative set in a fictional community along the Miramichi. His characters reveal the damage we are capable of causing through misunderstanding good intentions.

This piece is the carefully and touchingly constructed story of the development of character and the issues faced in the lives of several individuals; it is a picturesque rendering of human emotion in a Maritime setting. The character Bines is someone each of us once new, but perhaps few of us fully understood. This book brings us one step nearer to understanding others, and to understanding ourselves. Recommended for adults, but a good introduction to contemporary Canadian Literature for a devoted reader of any age.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
