From the author of the bestselling Fall on Your Knees comes a mesmerizing new novel 'The sun came out after the war and our world went Technicolour. Everyone had the same idea. Let's get married. Let's have kids. Let's be the ones who do it right.' The post-war dream has worked well for the McCarthy family, especially Madeleine, the high-spirited eight-year-old daughter. The family's posting to a quiet Canadian air force base is an adventure for her, secure as she is in the love of her beautiful mother and unaware that her father, a wing commander, is caught up in a web of secrets. The early 1960s, with its excitement of the space race overshadowed with the menace of the Cold War, is filtered through Madeleine's rich imagination as she draws us into her world. But when a local murder strikes at the heart of their new home, the McCarthy's lives are changed forever, in ways Madeleine will only begin to understand when she carries her quest for the truth, and the killer, into adulthood twenty years later. Compellingly written and with an unerring eye for the quintessentially human, Anne-Marie MacDonald stunningly evokes the pain, confusion and humour of childhood in the grip of a perilous adult world. At once a loving protrayal and indictment of a whole era, The Way the Crow Flies is a work of soaring intelligence and great heart.
