This story takes place in the small Canadian town of Deseranto, Ontario, beginning in 1919 after the close of World War I. Kenan Oak is a damaged veteran--the left side of his face is scarred and his left arm is useless. He has been home for over a year and has not been out of the house. His wife, Tressa, has been patient and kind. Kenans uncle Am and his wife, Maggie, are drifting apart after 20 years of marriage. The story of this family is the gist of the novel, and the story is brilliantly told. The characters are richly crafted and thoughtful.

The descriptions of the harsh Canadian winter are beautifully written. The book revolves around the themes of love, friendship, and loss. The writing is excellent. A great reading experience. Im always happy to find a new (to me) Canadian author. 4.5 starsIn reading the dust jacket (after I had finished the book), I discovered that this book is a follow-up to the book Deafening. I have not read this book, but Tell can be read independently with no problem.
