Couldn't put it down

I hesitated getting this book. After all, who isn't sick to death of hearing about the priest scandals. I have to hand it to Lynden MacIntyre though, he did an excellent job of telling the story. The story is intriguing and it keeps you interest piqued until the last words of the last chapter.

I know the tale is fiction, but in light of recent news reports, it makes you wonder if you know the characters in real life. The fiddler Archie MacIsaac comes to mind, but there are quite a few other characters that seem familiar as well.

The only downside of the book was that the narrator didn't know how to pronounce common place names in Nova Scotia such as Antigonish or Debert, even though he managed a pretty decent Gaelic.

Gave it a second chance...glad I did

The first time I listened, I was outraged at the narrator's mispronounciation of Antigonish and couldn't get by it. It coloured my whole experience and I wrote the book off with a "two star" and some regret that I'd "wasted" a credit.

On holiday this year, I decided I should give it another go - the book has won the Governor General's award & I like Lyndon MacIntyre. How glad I am that I did!

The story unfolds in layers & the characters with it. It is both fresh & familiar. I love this book.
