My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Boyden allowed me to feel that I had been to Moose Factory and felt the complicated nuances of self-government and survival that happen there. And yet it’s a wonderful modern mystery as we try to understand what has happened to Suzanne and we hope that her uncle Will’s story is going to end well. The complicated intertwining of these two narratives takes us over much of Northern Ontario and New York State. It crosses all sorts of social boundaries but feels rich in detail and authentic. I thoroughly enjoyed this read and I would highly recommend it to mature young adults and adults.
