Guy Vanderhaeghe's The Last Crossing is one of the most beautiful, moving books I have read this year. The action centers around a series of inter-related quests - for a missing brother, for love, for revenge, and for reclaimed dignity. Each of the major & minor characters in the book is drawn with such precision and feeling that the action often seems foreordained or a by-product of their natures. The language and tone of the book recapture the feel of a stately turn-of-the century novel. The exposition is told from the perspectives of each of the characters in turn - a device that might seem to be confusing but in Vandehaeghe's hands is marvelously compelling and right. ----The main plot of the book centers around Englishmen Addington & Charles Gaunt seeking their lost brother on the northern plains in the late 19th century. Their entourage picks up various others on the way, each of whom is seeking their own release on the journey. The ending is a shocking, yet fitting, climax to these various strands. --- This book is beautifully written and packs a powerful punch. The book is not yet available in the States but is well worth seeking out from Canada.

Guy Vanderhaeghe is one more example of a hidden Canadian treasure. This highly evocative tale ended much too soon. This one goes on my short list of all-time favorites.

I thoroughly enjoyed the characters and their interaction with one another as told by this author. Unpredictable and compelling I looked forward to getting down to it and finding Simon. I read for entertainment and I was not disappointed. I particularly liked the characters speaking in first person, I felt I knew Lucy Stovell and understood her. What a woman!

The entire beginning is written in three and four word sentences. Over and over. And over and over. So boring, I only lasted a few pages and tossed the book, so I don't know (or care) what the rest of it was like.
