review Good to a Fault free read Ô eBook or Kindle ePUB ï Marina Endicott Marina Endicott ï 3 characters In a moment of self absorption Clara Purdy's life takes a sharp left turn when she crashes into a beat up car carrying an itinerant family of six The Gage family had been travelling to a new life in Fort McMurray but bruises on the mother Lorraine prove to be late stage cancer rather than remnants of the accident Recognizing their need as her responsibility Clara tries to do the right t. Had been wanting to read this for a few years and picked it up at the library for 1 What a deal It kept me engrossed the whole way through It s about a small town Saskatchewan woman who causes an accident with a down on their luck family of 5 and winds up taking in the couple s three children when the Mother is suddenly hospitalized with cancer Sounds depressingand the themes of loneliness longing for human connection mortality illness and the cleavages between us that are often defined by classare not the most uplifting But the writing is superb and the characters so well drawn that I did not want the novel to end It also has an element of suspenseyou are never uite sure if the change in Clara s life will be permanent or if Lorraine will recover and take back her family In the end the novel expertly reveals the complicated nature of all people and the way a community can be created out of disparate parts It also explores the motives selfish and otherwise that push us to do good All that in one simple bookand there s even a bit of romance I thought it was a mesmerizing subtle and powerful meditation on the human condition Pretty much what I look for in a book
