Read in February, 2014

I started this book six months ago and for some reason got stuck about 3/4 of the way through. I'm not totally sure why it took me so long to pick this story back up and see it through to completion, because it is beautiful and compelling. It is a serious book that requires some effort, but it is far from boring. It's a story of three boys from a small town in Canada and how their lives intersect from childhood through their later years. It's a story about human frailty, guilt, madness, magic, and saints. Rewarding.
