The Age of Hope by David Bergen
"Read as part of the 2013 #CanadaReads (Canada Reads goes regional) faceoff, I was terribly disappointed by this book. Have never read any David Bergen before and wasn't encouraged by this one to read more. As the prairie/north regional nominee for..." Read more of this review »

Long. And British. With a touch of horror. Well mystery at any rate. I'm glad Sarah Waters had the gumption to make everyone's life miserable as a happy ending just wouldn't have cut it!

This was capital C Canadian. And I want to head to the far North today! Lovely characterizations with much Northern flora/fauna woven through.

Mary Oliver
“And it is exceedingly short, his galloping life. Dogs die so soon. I have my stories of that grief, no doubt many of you do also. It is almost a failure of will, a failure of love, to let them grow old—or so it feels. We would do anything to keep them with us, and to keep them young. The one gift we cannot give.”
Mary Oliver, Dog Songs
