Arthur and Jake: brothers, yet worlds apart. Arthur is older, shy, dutiful, and set to inherit his father's farm. Jake is younger and reckless, a dangerous to know. When Laura arrives in their 1930s rural community, an already uneasy relationship is driven to breaking point...
Mary Lawson's first novel, Crow Lake, was admired by critics and adored by readers all over the world; translated into 23 languages and published in 25 countries, it was a New York Times bestseller and spent 75 weeks on the bestseller lists in her native Canada. It was chosen by You magazine for its Reading Group and won the McKitterick Prize. Her second novel, The Other Side of the Bridge, was longlisted for the 2006 Man Booker Prize and selected for the Richard & Judy book club. Lawson was born and brought up in a farming community in Ontario, but came to England in 1968. She is married with two grown-up sons and lives in Kingston-upon-Thames.
"A beautiful read, on every level" Independent on Sunday "Like the great 19th-century novelists of provincial life, Mary Lawson is fluent in the desperate intensity of the small, individual dramas of respectable people - and she paints an eloquent picture" Sunday Telegraph "Evokes beautifully the big joys and sorrows of most people, no matter how small their town" The Times "Discreetly powerful" Daily Telegraph "This is a fine book - an enthralling read, both straightforward and wonderfully intricate" Guardian
A powerful, heartbreaking story about tempting fate and living with the consequences, set like Lawson's magical Crow Lake in the far north of Canada but with a magnificently broader reach
