Our big book for the month of May


The House of Wives - Canadian cover

Simon Choa-Johnston

“Simon Johnston has written a rollicking great novel that kept me turning the pages
so fast they almost burst into flames. With a powerful and lush sense of place, this
story of love, opium, and an exotic city will leave its mark on you as it did on me.
Sublime storytelling”
— TERRY FALLIS, author of No Relation and Poles Apart


Looking forward to these books in April 2016


The Mysterious Fragrance of the Yellow Mountains, by Yasuko Thanh

Yasuko Thanh

“Deft touches of magical realism lend this story of love, obligation, and sabotage the mysterious aura referenced in the title.”
— PUBLISHERS WEEKLY, starred review


The Mountain Story, by Lori Lansens

Lori Lansens

“Lori Lansens has created a heart-pounder of a book that is every bit as much of an emotional roller-coaster as an adventurous one. Filled with richly drawn characters, unexpected twists, and gritty details about survival, you'll want to read this right now. Unless, that is, you happen to be camping!”
— JODI PICOULT, bestselling author of Leaving Time

"A heart-stoppingly suspenseful tale"



“In Lansens' heart-stoppingly suspenseful tale, four strangers struggle together to survive after getting lost in the Southern California mountains. One of them, Wolf, is lost in more profound ways as well: He came to the mountain to commit suicide but soons finds himself fighting to save the lives of three women, along with his own. A moving portrait of the human spirit—as fierce, lovely and indomitable as nature itself.”People Magazine Pick of the Week

Advance praise for Lori Lansens

Coming April 14 in Canada, May 7 in the UK, and June 30 in the USA

“With her new novel, Lori Lansens may have reached the peak of story-telling prowess. The Mountain Story is a fast-paced and profound adventure that demands to be read in a single sitting… The Mountain Story is the best kind of binge read: exhilarating, inspiring, and life-affirming.” — QUILL & QUIRE starred review

“Lansens has written a colorful, adventurous wilderness survival novel.... [a] first-rate character-driven thriller.” — PUBLISHERS WEEKLY

“Four hikers get lost on a mountain, struggling desperately to stay alive, and it’s all as chilling and gorgeous and full of suspense as a cracking line of ice on a frozen lake. A breathtaking look at how the past footholds the future and how even the bleakest terror can find its way to unfathomable beauty.” — CAROLINE LEAVITT, New York Times bestselling author of Is This Tomorrow and Pictures of You


Reviewers praise Alix Hawley

“Hawley masterfully creates both a dreamlike world and a fearful fantasy…. The book's magic, however, is in Hawley's treatment of Boone's inner life. All True Not a Lie in It… may come closer to disclosing the ‘real’ Daniel Boone than those who originally manufactured and perpetuated his myth.” — QUILL & QUIRE starred review

“Hawley’s skills are impressive indeed. In her hands, Boone comes to life in a way that even long-time aficionados will find surprising and affecting…. Hawley’s Boone is a hero for these times, and All True Not a Lie in It is a powerful reminder of the fact behind the legend, of how fiction can arrive at fundamental, troubling human truths.” — THE VANCOUVER SUN

“Atmospheric and beautifully written .... The story retains an insistent allure.”
— THE TORONTO STAR

“Hawley’s ability to convey the menace of paradise is overwhelming, as well as her ability to make the reader share in the sorrows of her hero.” — THE NATIONAL POST
