My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This novel was mostly about the past: that of Armand Gamache, of Three Pines, and the Academy of the Surete. Penny wove the various tales together beautifully and once again crafted a compelling, thought provoking novel.
"There is always a road back if we have the courage to look for it, and take it. I'm sorry. I was wrong. I don't know. I need help. These are the signposts. The cardinal directions." (chapter 43)This book counts toward the 10th Canadian Book Challenge.
