Mary Lawson’s #1 internationally bestselling novels are stunning in their storytelling appeal, for their unforgettable characters who have become beloved to many thousands of readers, for their depth of feeling, and in their nuanced depiction of life in small-town rural Canada. Set in the rough-hewn heart of the Canadian Shield, Crow Lake brings us into the lives of a young family, orphaned and bound close by loss. Mary Lawson pays out their gripping, emotionally and morally subtle story with heartbreaking humour and consummate control, overturning one’s expectations to the end. In The Other Side of the Bridge, Lawson weaves a slow-burning tale of two brothers’ jealousy and rivalry, and also of the community they live in, decimated after World War II. Deeply engaging in its tenderness, this is a compellingly humane novel with a shocking climax.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The Other Side Of The Bridge was a fantastic read. Using a background that as a Canadian living in Ontario, I found it easy to relate to. It kept my interest from beginning to end and I cannot wait to read more of her novels.
