This novel gives all of the pleasure of a first-rate murder mystery, but its memorable characters and sublime language make The Fortunate Brother one of the very best novels I have read in years -- RON RASH, author of SERENA
Donna Morrissey is one of Canada's finest writers. And this novel might very well be her most powerful to date . . . I can't recommend this book highly enough -- JOSEPH BOYDEN, author of THREE DAY ROAD
