    When a widowed rancher hires a housekeeper to help with his three young sons, he finds her to be cheerful and competent. Yet she is concealing a colorful and infamous past. Filled with humor and hardship, this novel sings with what the author calls "a poetry of the vernacular". A finalist for the National Book award, Ivan Doig, who has published 11 books, has been hailed as the "West's preeminent literary novelist" by the Denver Post.

    "a wonderful book"
    Overall

    The author did a brilliant job weaving this story. It was a real "page turner." I loved the characters - down to earth, honorable, yet endearing and humorous. The setting felt real and the events seemed authentic. Humor, sorrow, fear, anticipation... all of these feelings that were a part of my journey through this book.
    Told from the perspective of the eldest son, this story demonstrates how even during the hardest times in life, the human spirit endures. This is an uplifting story with an appreciation for simpler times.

    As autumn descends upon Three Pines, a stranger is found murdered in the village bistro and antiques store at the center of town. No one admits to knowing the murdered man, but as secrets are revealed, chaos begins to close in on the beloved bistro owner, Olivier. What past did he leave behind, and why has he buried himself in this tiny village?

    "not easy to follow"
    Overall

    I couldn't get into this book and couldn't follow it. I don't consider myself unintelligent - I'm not sure if it was the narrator, or the way the author put the events together. It just didn't do it for me. I got it on sale - there was a reason why. I can't even finish it.
