ON THE SHELF: Why Men Lie

Why Men LieWhy Men Lie by Linden MacIntyre

My rating: 4 of 5 stars

I am always drawn to books by Canadian authors and thoroughly enjoy immersing myself in a familiar landscape. This book is set in both Toronto and on the East Coast. It is a beautifully told story, which is accessible to all readers. MacIntyre's ability to write from a female perspective was astounding. I was continuously surprised by the voice of Effie and developed a great fondness for her character. And even though we are meant to dislike her former husband for his indiscretions, MacIntyre captures his vulnerability and beautifully weaves the shared childhood of the characters in a way that makes the reader root for all of them.
