Alias Grace

You may have noticed once or twice that I am a huge fan of lists. So here is another interesting list, 100 Novels the Make You Proud to be Canadian. I've only read 5 of the 100 novels. That`s rather sad. The books I have read from this list are all in my Amazing category.


Alias Grace by Margaret Atwood


I cannot believe I've never posted about this book.  I loved it.  More twists and turns than a mountain road.  


Alias Grace is a historical fiction based on the true life case of Grace Marks, a young maid who murdered her employer and possibly the housekeeper.  Atwood fleshes out the story and takes the reader on quite the ride while trying to decide on Grace's guilt or innocence.  Grace's life including her time in an asylum and prison is well told.  

I recommend this book highly.
