Currently reading: Road Ends by Mary Lawson
I took a break from reading guilty pleasure YA fiction to check out a book my mother loaned me:
Road Ends by Mary Lawson. (Our features editor Kathryn Hudson wrote about the novel in the December issue of ELLE Canada, so I knew it would be good).

The story follows a family in the fictional west Ontario town of Struan during the winter of 1967, through the perspectives of three of its members. Edward, the emotionally distant patriarch, is alienated from his wife and kids, and struggles to come to terms with the sins of his own father. Mary, the only girl in a family of 8 boys, plans to move to England to escape the tedious domesticity of her life, while Tom, the eldest son, suffers in silence after a heartbreaking loss.
Road Ends is the type of book you can curl up in and read in a day: it’s beautifully written, never dull, and the best enjoyed with a steaming mug of cocoa.
