    From the two-time Man Booker short-listed author of The Secret Scripture comes a magnificent new novel that is the story of the twentieth century in America. Told in the first person, as a narrative of Lilly Bere’s life over seventeen days, On Canaan’s Side opens as Lilly mourns the loss of her grandson, Bill.

    Laurene says: "Lovely and sad"

    Would you listen to On Canaan’s Side again? Why?

    Although I never listen to a book twice, this was one of the most enjoyable audio books I have ever listened to. The characters were engaging and the reader's accent made them even more appealing.


    What was one of the most memorable moments of On Canaan’s Side?

    There is a secret about Lily's first husband that took me by surprise. I had come up with a thousand different things he was hiding, but I never hit on the right one. This made the reader compelled to finish the story to find out the secret.


    What about Wanda McCaddon’s performance did you like?

    Warm accent that brought the characters to life.


    If you were to make a film of this book, what would be the tag line be?

    A story of personal reflection, courage, and love.
