When Fenelon Falls by Dorothy Palmer – A review.

When Fenelon FallsWhen Fenelon Falls by Dorothy Palmer
My rating: 5 of 5 stars

Remarkable, funny, heart-breaking and completely original. A must read for children of the Ontario 60s, adoptees, and those with a passion for children. It takes a few pages to get into the rhythm of Palmer’s voice, her brilliant use of language, but it is well worth persevering. This is a novel that I will not soon forget.

  1. children of the Ontario 60s – that’s be me and I see Hurricane Hazel features in it as it did in my own pre-existence years. Mom and Dad were married the year Hazel arrived. Wish I had that e-reader I go look this up. Maybe I’ll get the preview and read that on my smartipantsphone

  3. Absolutely. We have given our PL a solid run for the m- , well, for free. Ours is even connected to a large e-book lending source and I’ve enjoyed downloading loans to read on my pc or my smartipantsphone.I was chatting with Mom after leaving the last comment noting that there is a dot ca site dedicated to Hurricane Hazel. Without skipping a beat she said, October 15th, 1954. She was spot on. That was the day there were to move into their new home.
