When Myriam decides to return to work as a lawyer after having children, she and her husband look for the perfect nanny for their son and daughter. They never dreamed they would find Louise: a quiet, polite, devoted woman who sings to the children, cleans the family’s chic Paris apartment, stays late without complaint, and hosts enviable kiddie parties. But as the couple and the nanny become more dependent on one another, jealousy, resentment, and suspicions mount, shattering the idyllic tableau.

I really enjoyed this novel. It pulls you in and does not let you go. In the end I felt sympathy for the nanny, and very little for the parents. Fascinating book.

Saul Indian Horse is in critical condition. Sitting feeble in an alcoholism treatment facility, he is told that sharing his story will help relieve his agony. Though skeptical, he embarks on a heartbreaking journey from the present - and into the woods of Northern Ontario, where his life began in a snowy Ojibway camp. The tale that follows is one of great pain and great determination from Richard Wagamese, an author who "never seems to waste a shot" ( New York Times).

Beautifully written and told, this is a very hard story to hear but should be required reading for all of us.

You are a failed novelist about to turn 50. A wedding invitation arrives in the mail: Your boyfriend of the past nine years is engaged to someone else. You can't say yes - it would be too awkward - and you can't say no - it would look like defeat. On your desk are a series of invitations to half-baked literary events around the world. Question: How do you arrange to skip town? Answer: You accept them all.

#Audible1 This is a funny, clever, quirky but poignant and heartwarming story about life passages and coming to terms with who you are and what is important. The author quickly draws you into the characters and story. The writing is skillful, clever in the best possible way. I could not wait to hear what would happen next to our protagonist, Less. I loved how surely-destined disaster situations turned around to be positive events, propelling him forward. It is a book that inspires hope, and reminds you to see the humorous side of life. I have recommended this book already, and it makes me want to read something else from this author. A strong narration makes this a book that was a pleasure to listen to.
