Eid and Two Novels

02 May

Happy Eid to all our family and friends and to everyone celebrating Eid today.

A dear friend lent me a novel by Mary Lawson, The Other Side of the Bridge and I loved it so much I looked for her first, Crow Lake, also set in the wilds of Ontario, and am now halfway through that one. I love the stories of family life, its tensions and its joys  and the descriptions of the world they live it. Her writing is utterly compelling. If you haven’t read any of hers yet, do.I think you might enjoy them too.

    Great books. We read them years ago for our book club.
