I finished reading The Tenderness Of Wolves by Stef Penney today. I found it quite a slow start but it quickly picked up momentum as I progressed. I liked the short chapters and the flitting from different character’s perspectives in each chapter, this kept the whole storyline light and flowing. Though the character’s stories started off separate and unlinked, I really enjoyed how they came together in the end.

Summary: Set in Canada, 1867, a woman sets off to find her 17 year old son who has mysteriously disappeared at the same time a man has been brutally murdered. She leaves her home to find her son and to clear his name and encounters much along the way.

An enjoyable read with twists here and there (which are not too absurd!). Worth a look at if this genre enthralls you!
