Crow Lake (by Mary Lawson) is one of those books that is impossible to put down. This story takes place in Northern Canada, in a remote and timeless town. The narrator is now a young zoology professor, but the story centers mostly on the life-changing year when she and her siblings were suddenly orphaned. It’s a beautiful and engrossing story of love, struggle, and misperceptions, of family and aching and reconciling one’s childhood in adulthood. Really excellent read; I'm glad this is our book club's choice for this month. I've put her other novel, The Other Side of the Bridge, on my reading list.
