About this deal

I’m back in Three Pines with start of “Brutal Telling” and have just remembered hearing about Roar Para in passing in one of the other stories – but can’t remember which one! I thought he resigned when he went to police headquarters where all the men were seated around the table, passing judgment on him. Penny tells us in her acknowledgements that this is very much inspired by the real Manoir Hovey in North Hatley, Quebec, so if you want a taste of it yourself .

I had the utmost pleasure reading it, with its enchanting prose, exquisite storytelling, and a vivid cast of characters.

As he ponders this conundrum, he and his team question and observe the family, convinced that the killer is among them. Ghostly father figures lurk, their children left behind to ponder their anxieties and disappointments.

Gamache, who has always believed himself to be reconciled with his father’s legacy, must grapple with the fact that he still has far to go in the quest to fully forgive his father. Other guests at the Manoir Bellechasse are the Finney/Morrow clan, who are having their annual family reunion.It is generally nice to be reflected and read " runners" and " icing", instead of "sneakers" and "frosting". The whole “Gamache as a Burgher of Calais” moment is to remind the reader that Gamache is Canadian Jesus. Just then the rest of the Morrow children—Thomas, Marianna, and Julia—join them and overtake the conversation.
