Book cover: ‘Beautifully written, carefully balanced, Mary Lawson constructs a history of sacrifice, emotional isolation and family love without sounding a wrong note.’ DAILY MAIL

Crow lake is that rare find, a first novel so quietly assured, so compelling, and with an emotional charge so perfectly controlled, that you sense at once that this is the real thing – a literary experience to relish book to loose yourself in, and a name to watch.

Here is a gorgeous, slowburning story of families growing up and tearing each other apart in rural Northern Ontario, where tragedy and hardship are measured in the landscape. Centre stage and the Morrison’s whose tragedy are insidious and divisive. Orphaned young, Kate Morrison’s was her older brother Matt’s protégée, her curious fascination for pondlife fed by his passionate interest in the natural world. Now a zoologist, she ca identify organisms under a microscope, but seems blind to the tragedy of her own emotional life. She thinks she’s outgrown her family, who were once her entire world – but she can’s seem to out her childhood or lighten the weight of their mutual past.

A well-written novel. With its engaging style and touching story, this was to me a thoroughly enjoyable read. I may have to get a copy of my own at some point.

This book is now lurking on one of the overhead shelves of the coat racks next to Pegasus.
