Guy Vanderhaeghe recommends
Deep River Night (2018)
Patrick Lane
"In a novel that journeys from wartime Europe and China to the remote interior of B.C., Patrick Lane offers us a wise, profound meditation on loss, longing, and the struggle for redemption. It is a work of art in which every sentence sings, revealing love and beauty hidden in unexpected lives and places. Deep River Night is a wonder."
Children of the Day (2005)
Sandra Birdsell
"Birdsell's new novel is a wonderful book, a passionately intimate family drama that also cunningly, magically reflects the history of western Canada. Children of the Day is a remarkable achievement on both counts."
