Product description


It's already one of my favourite books of the year ― Rachel Joyce

She has the God-given ability to convey the complexities of human nature in everyday language... Like a magician, Lawson hides her technique, and makes it all seem as natural as breathing -- Craig Brown ― Mail on Sunday

A contemplative story about loss and regret, a slow burn of a read with a fire at its heart -- John Boyne ― Irish Times

Lawson's writing is such that it appears effortless but, as all the strands come together to create a rich and satisfying tapestry, her genius for storytelling becomes apparent ― Irish Independent

The doubts, difficulties and uncertainties of the human condition are carefully examined in a way that is both heartbreaking and joyful ― Scotsman

About the Author

Mary Lawson's first novel, Crow Lake, was loved by critics and readers all over the world; it was translated into 25 languages and published in 28 countries. It was a New York Times bestseller, won the McKitterick Prize and spent 75 weeks on the bestseller lists in her native Canada. Her second novel, The Other Side of the Bridge, was longlisted for the Booker Prize and selected for the Richard & Judy Book Club. Road Ends, published in 2014, was described by the New York Times as 'tender and surprising . . . a vivid and evocative tale'. A Town Called Solace, published to critical acclaim in February 2021, was an instant bestseller in her native Canada. Mary came to England in the 1960s, and lives in Kingston-upon-Thames.

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.
