    1. This is a book I enjoyed more on second reading. Both times I sank into Choyce's excellent writing, but this time I appreciated the later parts of the book and the ending more, I think because the first time I was mostly interested in the plot. He writes of deep things in a very approachable and clear way, or as clear as such things can be.


    2. This novel begins with an introduction to Eric, a middle aged retired history professor who is recovering in an Ottawa hospital after he was found lost, half frozen and wandering on Baffin Island. During his recovery he meets Ray, a young Inuit man who is a janitor and comes to his room daily to mop the floor. Ray tells Eric that he must have met his grandfather. Eric is puzzled, not understanding what this young man means but doesn’t question it, and during his time in hospital while his body [...]


    3. More 3.5ish. I liked this book yet I didn't at the same time. The writing intrigued me but the story as a whole was not so interesting to me. I am glad I finished it though.


    4. “The wall melted slowly in one place and language began to flow over the top, spilling into the place where he lived.” Choyce is an unrealized treasure, whose language flows with a natural grace, where the words ‘ordinary,’ and ‘good,’ combine to create something wonderful. He has created a great work of fiction that touches on many philosophical levels without once over-explicating on those philosophies. Choyce has a mature style that delivers simply in unaffected language that is [...]

Growing up as a lighthouse keeper's daughter in Halifax Molly has a deep connection to nature.After a friend asks Molly to visit with her nephew who is a cancer patient at the hospital, she develops a friendship with Todd. Their relationship eventually comes into question and leads to a criminal investigation. Can Molly heal more than broken spirits and minds?Choyce's language sweeps y [...]


    6. Eric wakes up in the hospital after nearly freezing to death in the Arctic. Molly runs her used books store in Halifax and lets a group of young musicians use it for practice space. Todd is fourteen and seriously ill in the hospital. This book shows how these characters interact with Molly as its center. Molly grew up as the daughter of lighthouse keepers on Devil's Island off the coast of Halifax. She reflects on her early life as she tries to comfort Todd and is also reminded of her own life-c [...]


    7. This was a really unusual, haunting kind of story that I won't soon forget. The writing was excellent, and the characters were very memorable and well defined. Kudos to Lesley Choyce!
