"It must have taken guts to write this novel, which could have been exploitative but, instead, proves thoughtful and light on its feet. Rather than dwell on the crimes, Toews wrings unexpected drama from her protagonists' moral and theological to-ing and fro-ing, as they spar over how best to remain faithful to a system that has been used to betray them so brutally. The improbable, almost magical result creates something redemptive from a subject that seems anything but." The Guardian, September 2018

Do you need an original and personal present for someone? Order a Book Bouquet. Three ($80) or Four ($100) beautifully wrapped and presented books, chosen personally by the staff at Hunter Street Books. We will include a brief note explaining why we picked each book. When you check out in the webstore let us know if you'd like a specific theme (Get Well, Happy Mother's Day, etc.) or a specific genre (fiction, non-fiction, poetry, etc.). Or let us surprise you! Order online or come in and buy a bouquet. Give us a day to get your order ready and then pick up and deliver to that special someone! Or, if you are sending to someone far away, we would be happy to send by Purolator (charges will apply)!
