Good to a Fault review » 107 In a moment of self absorption Clara Purdy's life takes a sharp left turn when she crashes into a beat up car carrying an itinerant family of six The Gage family had been travelling to a new life in Fort McMurray but bruises on the mother Lorraine prove to be late stage cancer rather than remnants of the accident Recognizing their need as her responsibility Clara tries to do the right t. Four very solid stars Fault weakness or failing Clara Purdy is driving along one day minding her own business when she hits the vehicle occupied by the Gage family Chaos ensues adults children and a baby come clamouring out of the car everyone heads to the hospital Clara at first thinks she is free to go once everyone gets the all clear No serious injuries But there is a twist and she somehow feels a moral obligation to take this family in temporarily I have to admit these characters annoyed me Clara was generous and they were ingratiatingly thankless Endicott is a remarkable writer she brings these characters to life whether we like them or not The characters can be intense but the writing is gracious and uiet Was Clara s goodness in the end her own weakness This book could bring about some wonderful discussions My only regret is leaving it on my TBR pile for so long I look forward to reading works by Endicott a truly talented writer

Good to a Fault review » 107 Nd Lorraine must live with her growing unpayable debt to Clara and the feeling that Clara has taken her placeWhat exactly does it mean to be good When is sacrifice merely selfishness What do we owe in this life and what do we deserve Marina Endicott looks at life and death through the compassionate lens of a born novelist being good being at fault and finding some balance on the precipi. This is a novel about what I will call wanting a better phrase the extraordinary ordinary about the lengths to which people go and the barriers that prevent them from going further It is a book for adults full of the complexities of the intersections of life love religion ethics etc I realize I could be writing about any good novel not just this one but there is nothing exotic or strange about the premise of this story which is a car accident and its aftermath nothing exotic or strange about the characters all of whom are recognizably human and accordingly a mix of virtues strengths weaknesses etc The scenes are well painted and change freuently enough to keep the limited action of the novel moving along What I think I liked best about the novel is the fact that the author uite consciously puts the reader in the position of a god looking down on the lives of these many protagonists and clearly thinks any god worth a damn would not only forgive all of them but invite them in for tea or maybe a beer

The cancer card trumps everything protagonist Clara Purdy ruminates and that sums up the premise of this novel Throw this dreadful desease into the midst of any family unit functional or dysfunctional and everyone is afflicted conflicted guilt ridden and exposed not just the patient Many outcomes are also possible the patient can die the patient can survive the marriage may crumble new romances may flourish wisdom may arrive and everyone is changed tools for the writer s arsenal of possible endings and Endicott skillfully uses them allThat said the reader has to wade through a neverendum of domesticity to get to the end changing diapers feeding the baby bathing and clothing the children cleaning the house cooking meals going to the supermarket treating lice getting the flu avoiding child molesters looking after the batty mother in law etc etc I found very little literature in all this Is literature supposed to be an exact copy of real life The author has the nerve to subject the reader to all this domestic detail the stuff we want to get away from by burying our noses in a novel but there is no relief in this book I caution you all the while giving us snippets of a plot line that moves at the slow but steady pace of a tortoise Endicott must enjoy the trust and confidence of a publisher who is willing to wait for the twist which is normally expected on page 1 wannabe writers please note but in this case happens around page 300 when the conseuences of all Clara s good actions come home to roostThere are a lot of good people in this book ever willing to put their busy lives on hold to hover around a sick person and her family and the bad guys are just poor that s why they are bad All these good and bad forces converge upon Clara who is selfishly trying to find fulfillment in her empty life and accepts the burden of instant single parenthoodguest invasion home renovation loss of both her cars unemployment becoming care giver to a cancer patient and the lover to a priest all in a few swell swoops over a couple of months Boydoes she know how to pack it in Overworked single parents may find this book cathartic their lives can t be any hectic or worse than poor Clara sClara and Lorraine the cancer patient are well drawn and contrasted against the baddies Clayton and his mother Mrs Pell Darlene Dolly Lorraine s daughter is the ever watchful eye but does not morph into a rounded character perhaps children in their formative years are not expected to The other characters were shapeless voices to me and the poor pastor is definitely a wimp if the author expected that outcome of Rev Paul she definitely achieved it The constantly shifting POV was distracting at times and the prose did not flow well in the places when it was written to reflect inner thoughts of the charactersThe ending however redeemed the novel when the final plot point dropped and made reading the book through to its conclusion worthwhile
