>This review is part of the Green Books campaign. 200 bloggers take a stand to support books printed in an eco-friendly manner by simultaneously publishing reviews of 200 books printed on recycled or FSC-certified paper. By turning a spotlight on books printed using eco-friendly paper, we hope to raise the awareness of book buyers and encourage everyone to take the environment into consideration when purchasing books.
The campaign is organized for the second time by Eco-Libris, a green company working to make reading more sustainable. We invite you to join the discussion on “green” books and support books printed in an eco-friendly manner! A full list of participating blogs and links to their reviews is available on Eco-Libris website.
The book that I reviewed is called Sounding Line – by Canadian author Anne DeGrace. In 1967, an unidentified flying object crashed into the waters of Shag Harbour, Nova Scotia. The incident came to be known as “Canada’s Roswell.” But don’t let that fool you. There is a depth to this story that surprised me. There is a family dealing with cancer that sets this book apart from any other ‘ufo’ books that you might be thinking of. I loved the maritime feel, the cadence of the words and sounds. I felt it. I smelt the fishy air, I heard the men speak the words and wished I was there in that little town.
If you have never read a novel by a Canadian author, Anne DeGrace is a good selection!
