This slow-burning story is set in the rural ""badlands"" of Northern Ontario, where tragedy and hardship are mirrored in the landscape. It is a universal drama of family love and misunderstandings, of resentments harboured and driven underground.Tweet
Beautifully and gently written Crow Lake is the moving and compelling tale of a family, of love and loss, of tragedy and hope, and the importance of relationships. It's set in a small, remote community in northern Ontario, Canada, where everyone knows everyone else and they all pull together. Mary Lawson never puts a foot wrong in telling this wholly believable, heartwarming story. And Bo is such a wonderful, recognisable toddler - she made me laugh out loud!
