With the approach of the March Break 2012, many parents will find themselves on vacation at the cottage or elsewhere in the country.
An excellent book to pack is the latest thriller by Louise Penny: DÉFENSE DE TUER (translation of the original - The Murder Stone). The action of the book takes place in the Eastern Townships at the Manoir Bellechasse (fictitious name inspired by the Manoir Hovey in North Hartley).
The author Penny has been very successful in describing the atmosphere of a country house hotel and we appreciate her descriptive narrative as much as the murder mystery discovered by the detective Armand Gamache ...
An excellent book to accompany the March break.
