When Kate is only 7-years old, tragedy hits her family in Northern Ontario. She and her baby sister, Bo, end up being raised by their older brothers, Luke (19-years old) and Matt (17-years old). Luke gives up his future so they can stay together, and also so Matt can finish school and continue to university (he was always the smarter one, anyway – the one expected to go to university). Kate and Matt have a bond.

Grown-up Kate, a professor in Toronto, never thought she’d fall in love, but she has. But she also has a hard time opening up to Daniel about her past and her family, even though they’ve been together for more than a year. Daniel still hasn’t even met her family.

I really liked this. It was slow-moving, but I found even the biology bits interesting. There was tension in Kate’s family, though she didn’t understand much of it when she was a kid. And the neighbours had some drama (this may be putting it lightly) going on at their place, as well. I actually read this over a decade ago, but only remembered siblings and a lake (actually it was a pond). I really didn’t remember much at all, but it was chosen as a book club book, and I’m really glad I reread it. ( )

This book had a huge impact on me. It’s one I’ll be thinking about for a long time and I think I can already say might be one of my favourite books ever. The writing was beautiful, and the way that Kate’s story was told was perfect. It felt like she was bringing us alongside her, through her grief, the way that her relationship to her siblings flexed and changed, her meditations on responsibility and pride and what it means to be happy, and then we were right there with her when she came to this epiphany that hit me just as hard as the tragedy these siblings endured and the way they banded together in an imperfect way to help each other through it.

I enjoyed reading this one. The first person flashbacks were carefully woven into the present day story. ( )

Terrific - couldn't put it down. It has that rich, deep quality that stems from a writer's childhood memories. And the story-telling is tight and structured and the characters compelling, the place is vivid. There is also a real feeling of hope for the future, a sense of Canada moving forward, of roads, environment, family relationships, all improving by fits and starts. I'll bet modern Canada is more complicated than that, but I'm happy to inhabit Crow Lake for a bit and I shall definitely look forward to another book. ( )

Narrated by Kate, a zoology professor, shethinks back to her childhood in a remote village of the Canadian North. The death of their parents, the self sacrifice of the two eldest brothers to abandon study to keep the family together..and a strange local family, with a psychopathic father and his strange,terrified children...
We get hints throughout of a family rift and of dark events. Kate's early love for her brilliant elder brother Matt seems to have come off the rails.
Read over a couple of days- pretty unputdownable. Was the ending a slight disappointment?? ( )
