4.73 Algoma

A year after watching Leo go through thin ice, twelve-year- old Ferd is obsessed with the idea that he can persuade his dead brother to come home through a campaign of letters. Plaintive notes appear around the house-folded squares of paper in the rain reservoir, kitchen sink, and washing machine. Ferd's mother, Algoma, is also unravelling; attempting to hide her son's letters, reconnect with her increasingly distant husband, and rebuild her life.

Editorial reviews (1 review)

Algoma is her first novel and falls firmly in the Canadian tradition. Set in a small town in Quebec’s north, it’s a domestic drama of a family that loses a son to the ice.
