Kudos to Ms Pendziwol's leap from children's books to an adult audience. I loved this book. However I would not consider this an easy breezy summer read. It requires one's undivided attention, especially the last 2/3rds of the book. I had to go back and re-read some of the end chapters as to refresh my memory of who was who. Heart warming and tragic at the same time. A great blend of friendship and family bonds.

I thoroughly enjoyed this engaging tale of multi generational family bonds and the secrets kept to protect them. I would describe this read as a cross between a Light Between Oceans (Stedman) in terms of setting and themes, and the Notebook (Sparks) in the manner in which the story was related. The Canadian historical context and setting was an extra bonus.

I think i found my favourite summer read of 2017!
