"Edson’s vivid portrayal of the urban area, as well as the working class and underclass, creates a vision of Saint John that highlights the discrepancy between the pre-modern idyllic notion of life in Atlantic Canada and the more complicated reality of the region."

The Year Mrs. Montague Cried

Sue White has written her first novel, The Year Mrs. Montague Cried, and I've just started reading it and can't put it down. Dubbed as a Young Adult Novel, it's a book everyone should read--it's got heart, sadness, and redemption; something every good story has. The writing is clean and simple and what a pleasure to read. I highly recommend it.
