review Consolation Consolation Free download â 9 OlleaguesThree months later Hollis is dead and his grieving widow Marianne embarks on a furtive unsettling uest to vindicate her husband From her hotel room overlooking the excavation site where the arena is to stand she watches and waits for a piece of the past to reappear that might alleviate the anguish of these civic and private vanishings. After reading Bellevue Suare I was determined to read all of Michael Redhill s books my Goodreads challenge for 2019 He has become My Favourite Author overnight Consolation is the second Redhill book that I have read but was disappointed It s well written and thoughtfully presented with its zigzagging timelines I just found it too slow lacking the zany twists of Bellevue Suare But Michael Redhill is still My Favourite Author and the challenge is still on

review Consolation Consolation Free download â 9 It is 1856 Toronto Unable to make a living in the New World from his trade English apothecary JG Hallam takes up the new science of photography and embarks on a grand project to document the bleak young city But returning from an exhibition of these images in England Hallam's ship is lost in a violent storm on Lake Ontario and the strongbox ho. He put it a recently excavated clay pipe into my hand and closed my fingers over it and he said the past really happened You held it in your hand You know something most people don t Consolation 435 Consolation changed the way I look at Toronto the city where I live This was not only because it asked me to imagine things like black bears walking down King St or a graveyard in fact a necropolis at the now busy intersection of Yonge and Bloor which added a vivid historical layer to these locations but also because it illustrated that knowing something about how my home city grew from woodland to metropolis is important Redhill s book show that a place so full of significance to me by virtue of its familiarity was invested with value and meaning by people who died long before I existed To carry a heightened awareness of this the idea of the possibility of this is to experience your city differently But Consolation is not just a pean to Toronto and its history Redhill s novel also elegantly and movingly explores themes of loss and family The story s split between two periods facilitates this well In sections set in the present the reader slowly collects a portrait of David an ALS afflicted father and husband whose academic discovery and death sets the plot in motion through his grieving family Each member struggles to define what the absence of David means to them and as they go a picture of David becomes present for the reader The other sections of the book that take place in 1850s Toronto provide a structural inversion In 1850s Toronto it is the father and husband Jem that grapples with the absence of his family who remain in England a three week postal delay away A failing business and loneliness presses him toward new friendships and opportunities and in creating them Jem gains a deeper understanding of himself Similarly elegant symmetries abound in this book as does Redhill s beautiful insightful prose Both work together to illustrate among other many things that the connections between past and present are not as faint as we it is sometimes all too easy to precieve them to be

I borrowed this book without putting much time into reviewing it beforehand When I actually picked it up to read and determined what it was about ie Toronto I figured it would be boring and likely not worth my while Once I started reading it I initially confirmed my suspicions and almost put it down in reality I never do this Am I glad I didn t I loved the intermingling of the two stories one from 1997 Toronto where I happen to live and one from 1856 historical Toronto It became a two for one bonusI m a fan of historical fiction and thoroughly enjoyed delving into the beginnings of what has now become the Toronto of today Redhill did an excellent job of using the appropriate diction for the times which made it all that much likeableDefinitely a good read and proof of the old adage Don t judge a book by its cover
