The Fortunate Brother by Donna Morrissey

She is one of my favourite authors from NewFoundland. This is the third novel about the Now family (Sylvanus Now and What They Wanted) focusses on Kyle, the youngest surviving brother. Three years after the death of his brother Chris, Kyle is still raw with gried as are his parents. The book explores the insularity of the community in which we find the Nows – it is at times funny, at times searingly heartbreaking and has a great mystery running throughout. The best of the trilogy – but the other two are grand. MOrrissey is really one of Canada’s best!
