In a good book there must be: good character development, some likable characters, a great plot with unexpected twists and turns, and a message.
I could feel how the author loved her characters and one could understand the choices they made. It read like a screen play and was very visual with scenes of the wilderness of the 1800's in northern Canada. Great Book!!!
PS. Everyone in the book club enjoyed the book.
Among those helping or hindering her cause or simply interested in the case for their own reasons are the town's retired judge and community elder Andrew Knox and his two daughters (one dark, plain, deep and intelligent, the other fair, pretty, coquettish and a shallow flirt), a representative from the Hudson Trading Company, a mysterious out of towner bent on coveting an archaelogical find once in possession of the murder victim. There are many others. Penney begins with solid material - the central storyline is never less than compelling but sadly loses some of its momentum when mired by different strands from having too many subplots radiating from the center.
Her characterization is complex but underdeveloped, the result of overambition - Penney finds herself juggling too many balls. A pity, as she's got characters we want to know better, like the emotionally dormant Mrs Ross who is fascinating for being never less than a breath away from being ignited by the half-caste Parker.Read more ›
