A Place Called Winter - Patrick Gale

Finished: 5/5/2021

Rating: 3+*

Gay romance set in the early days of farming in Canada. Not bad, but would not recommend.

  • The first part, before he moved to Canada, seemed too long and uninteresting.

  • The Bethel part was not interesting.

  • Rather interesting to read overall, however.

  • The settings (Canadian farms) were nice.

  • The villain is a bit dumb.

  • I hate rape-driven plots (Kite Runner is the worst offender IMO). It's the cheapest way to make someone sympathize the character.

  • I'm not too interested in gay soul searching.

  • Not too clear what it's all about really. What was the point of it.
