This was a great piece of historical fiction, with well-formed characters and a compelling story. Excellent craftsmanship. ( )

The Tenderness of Wolves by Stef Penney (2007)

[This is a review I wrote in 2008]

**A good plot, but not very gripping...**

The plot is complex and intelligent, but I found it hard to keep going... very slow-paced and not so well written. The style of writing is quite disjointed and repetitive, which doesn't fully do justice to the complex plot being woven, and also unravelled, in the Canadian wilderness.

The story is full of compassion and sorrow. It is the year 1867. A 17-year-old boy, a solitary and solemn young man, is discovered to be missing about the same time that a Frenchman by the name of Jammet is found brutally murdered in his cabin. A man is wrongfully accused, jailed and beaten, whilst Francis's mother becomes so worried, she sets out on a journey to find her young son.

Inter-racial tensions are cleverly and sympathetically portrayed, as well as personal struggles of love, friendship and propriety of behaviour. However, I just couldn't find pace and the only thing kept me reading was my determined refusal to give it up for good. The last few chapters do pick up on pace and intensity, but I was disappointed not to find more of this compelling writing style throughout the rest of the novel. A good, solid, interesting read but quite lacking in the suspense I was expecting. ( )

Last book I read in its entirety about 3 months ago. Loved it. Can't wait for her/him to write another. Fantastic villain's and hero's. Great story. ( )

This novel seemed to take me an age to read despite it being an average sized book. Winner of the 2006 Costa book of the year award, Stef Penney's debut novel is as average as the number of it's pages. The novel follows several different story-lines which, although all reach their linked conclusions by the end of the book, do so quite dubiously. Penney is by all means a gifted writer, her prose is clever and the description of the Canadian forests are believable and beautiful, yet the complicated and mostly unnecessary number of interlocking plots mask this book's real potential.

The fact that this novel features under the genre 'Historical Mystery' does by no means limit it to this, the book also features a love story and a murder. In fact, the entire mystery is greatly overshadowed by the other twists and turns of the novel. This lack of focus, I feel, adds to the lack of focus I felt when reading it, unlike most books finished within the week, this took me considerably longer. I was engaged initially by the potential of the storyline but was unfortunately disappointed by the outcome, at no point did I find the story thrilling or find myself really wondering who indeed was the perpetrator to the crime.

Despite all this, I will return to the fact that the novel was well-written and whether there should have been so many plots and changing character point of view chapters, it was nevertheless a cleverly written novel with an interesting and dramatically located story.

I read The Tenderness of Wolves and fell into the story right away; the characters were well drawn and Penney is able to lead the reader from one page to the next.

There are few things like an endless vista to make a novel seem really gratifyingly contained. The novel itself comes to seem like a fragile bubble of consciousness beyond whose limits is a threatening void. (And that's what novels, in one essential manner, are.) And living in the rudimentary civilisation of mid 19th-century Canada must have been like living in a novel: there is nothing to concentrate on except the flawed characters of your fellow human beings, and the spoor left by their movements. And that, in a way, is all The Tenderness of Wolves is about.
