5.0 out of 5 stars Of being in Solace
By Singh, R. on 2 July 2021
What a delightful book! It’s no surprise that Lawson is Anne Tyler’s most recommended and loved author. In a small town called Solace located up in the North of Ontario, Canada, there is Clara, her neighbour Mrs. Orchard and Liam. It is 1972 and Clara’s sister Rose is missing and Mrs. Orchard (her companion) has admitted herself in a hospital. The 8-year old girl has no one but the cat of Mrs. Orchard to look after when Liam, a stranger walks into the empty house of her neighbour. The small town story begins right there with Clara unable to deal with her parents’ lies, her sister’s and companion’s absence, and the presence of a stranger who seems no less than a threat to the cat. I loved loved the book. It’s simplicity to deal with such intricate set of emotions and plots won me over right from the first chapter. I felt Tyler’s warm Baltimore come alive and exist somewhere far away from Lawson’s Solace. I was also reminded of Harris’s Lansquenet and Vianne Rocher stepping into a peaceful french town and cause a hullabaloo. Across borders, the culture of small town is something pleasing and comforting to read. It makes me want to question the life I live in the anonymity of a city and pack my bags and wonder into somewhere called Solace or Lansquenet. If you are looking for something heartwarming and yet intense, I would suggest this book wholeheartedly. As much as it is a domestic fiction, I loved how the author built into a sense of mystery that has you on the edge of your seat throughout the book.
