The Magician's Elephant is beautiful and magical. Come From Away, set in Nova Scotia during the Second World War, offers unique perspectives, while Our Missing Hearts was fantastic and a bit frightening.
Great read in Chris Bohjalian's Hour of the Witch.
The Orchardist, Amanda Coplin's debut novel, has been called a must-read book. I really liked it and I would recommend it to people who are able to look past the heavy stuff.
Pippo & Clara was my favourite of books read this month that also includes Gender Swapped Fairy Tales and a graphic novel about Japanese-Canadians during the Second World War.
Small Things LIke These is a powerful, non-fiction story based on the true events of the Magdalen laundries in Ireland.
