The English Book Club: Mary Lawson – A Town Called Solace

Clara’s sister is missing. Grief-stricken and bewildered, she is waiting every day for her return. Liam, newly divorced and unemployed, moves into the house next door, and is visited by the police within a few hours. At the end of her life Miss Orchard is thinking about an incident that had tragic consequences for two families. Set in Northern Ontario in 1972, A Town Called Solace explores the relationships of these three people brought together by fate and past mistakes. By turns gripping and darkly funny, the novel uncovers the layers of grief and remorse and love that connect us, but also shows that sometimes a new life is possible.
