A Tenderness of Wolves

by Stef Penney

I found this book intriguing as I knew very little about this period in Canadian history which had so many settlers from other countries finding their way in such a new country. I was especially surprised by the depiction of the Hudson Bay Company which I had always assumed to be an upstanding and well thought of enterprise. The characters were very real and I was especially disappointed when the book finished without resolving the main character's relationship with the trapper who helped her - perhaps another book in the making ?

I would never have chosen this book but a friend recommended it so I gave it a try. It was definitely one of those unputdownable reads where you don't want to do anything but read it to the end. The book made me feel the coldness and bleakness of the countryside. I know nothing about Canada so it gave me a unique view of the country.

I really enjoyed this book. It was an exciting and intirguing ,a good strong story with a writing style that made the period setting seem authentic. It is interesting that the author, apparently , has never visited Canada.
