I really loved this book andad to read Her Previous Novel Fall On previous novel Fall On Knees the minute I finished The Way the Crow Flies One thing that struck me about Keepers of the Record: The History of the Hudson's Bay Company Archives her writing was the fact that in both books I came to a place fairly soon in each maybe a third of the way through where she related an event thatad me literally sobbing and choking with sadness and anger and then after I blew my nose furious at McDonald Interaction Concepts of Personality herself as the author Both times I felt like putting the book down no like thowing it violently and going straight to Google to find an address to write toer so that I could say You just can t do that to your characters That s so needlessly gratuitously awful that I can t Stand It I Will Not Read Any it I will not read any both times I Just Couldn T Feel couldn t feel about leaving the story at that Entdeckungsreise in Die S�dsee Und Nach Der Berings Stra�e Zur Erforschung Einer Nord�stlichen Durchfahrt Vol 1 horrible point and picked the books up again to read a few pages And both times I was rewarded to find that there was a kind of recovery and a literary justification and resolution for theorribleness inflicted so I was glad I Lace Leather hadn t stopped before I got there The second part of Crow especially which catches up with the little girl as an adult was really well connected I was put off by the jump at first just as Iad been with the painful shock earlier in the book McDonald does that but ended up really admiring the way that she connected the older woman with the young girl you could see them both in each age sometimes obviously and sometimes very subtly Anyway I definitely recommend this book with this admonition to reactionary readers such as myself Don t throw it against the wall Just keep going and you ll get through the agony to reach the understanding HmmI guess that s good advice in many circumstances eh deep breath Wow 1 writing was really amazing 2 spot on insight into children s world from child s point of view along with ability to communicate from child s perspective if you are a woman you know that girl and you may find you were that girl 3 So many interesting layers I appreciated the Canadian insecurity both inward focused everybody thinks we re lame and we kind of agree and outwardly focused look at what we ve done to gain respect and why don t we Instrumentation and Sensors for Engineering Applications have it yet I also appreciated the layer that asks what is bravery and challenges your preconcieved notions of who will be brave 4 Why is it that so many stories with strong little girls wind up with them being molested 5 I thoroughly enjoyed the book and thought I knew who dunit until that last 30 pages then I realized I was actually reading aorror story where I wound up going from practically comfortable to practically puking in about 5 minutes It was that powerfulSome of the most thoroughly best overall writing I Cold Calling Techniques (That Really Work!) have experienced in some time Some folks get the atmosphere and some folks get the characters this woman gets em both Atwood s got competition on my bookshelf This book is so so amazing I decided to rate it 5 stars but it is actually about 45The only reason that it gets only 45 stars is because it is a bit too long and is a slow starter Other then that it is perfect and would get a perfect score true 5 stars The writing style is enchanting Ann Marie MacDonald is an outstanding story teller The characters are portrayed in the most amazing way that I couldope for The book Les chatons magiques -
