    Great plot, characters and writing.

    A novel about family, community, tragedy and the choices we make to protect what we love most. Bear Town is a brilliant novel filled with unforgettable, heartbreaking, resilient characters that stay with you long after the book ends.

    Wonderful Read!

    This book is about hockey, but it is also about lifestyle, about parenting styles, about how children grow up making choices that are partly due to how they are raised, but also partly due to their personalities and inner motivation. This book is also about how a town can foster pride in accomplishment – and how pride is always a double-edged sword. Pride can be the catalyst for people to excel and pride can also create a sense of entitlement. Actions without consequences. Consequences that lead to tragedies. And where does it stop? Is a line drawn at the forest? In the ice? In the earth? Who draws the line? Who crosses it because it is there? Who has the courage to stop the spiral before tragedy begets more tragedy? This story is one of lives and lifestyles careening out of control and what it takes to bring a town back to its truest self again. I loved this story and if you haven’t read it yet, you have a wonderful experience ahead of you!

    Quality of Silence

    A good read but some events are improbable. Learned a lot about life in the north.
