Journal Entry 1 by dancermum from Upper Hutt, Wellington Province New Zealand on Monday, February 16, 2009
Canadian writer Mary Lawson's debut novel is a beautifully crafted and shimmering tale of love, death and redemption set in the eponymous Crow Lake, an isolated rural community where time has stood still. Narrated by 26-year-old Kate Morrison, we dive in and out of the troubled woman's childhood memories over the passage of a year--when she was seven and her parents were killed in a motoring accident, leaving Kate, her younger sister Bo and two older brothers Matt and Luke orphaned. The proverbial can of worms is opened for our heroine when she receives an invitation to Matt's son's 18th birthday.

Crow Lake is a wonderful achievement that will ripple in and out the reader's consciousness long after the last page is turned.
