Author of the Week – LOUISE PENNY – The Beautiful Mystery
Louise Penny is a best selling crime Author she is from Quebec in Canada and decided to give up broadcasting for writing. Louise created an Inspector called Armand Ganache and this is her eighth novel in the series. Currently The Beautiful Mystery is number 2 on the New York Times Bestseller list. Donna asks her all about her life, her masterful writing and her latest book.
“Could a book by Louise Penny have a better title than “The Beautiful Mystery”. The title, like Penny’s fiction, has multiple layers. First is the crime: the murder of the choir director of a monastery in the deep woods of Quebec. Then there’s the joyous but inexplicable emotions the monks’ glorious liturgical singing invokes. And there’s the disconnect between the monks’ vows of silence and their renowned singing. And then, of course, there’s the mystery of religion itself….For the reader, meanwhile, there’s a final beautiful mystery to contemplate: How does Penny consistently write such luminous and compassionate books?.” The Seattle Times

We may not be Mothers but we’re here, we care, we count & we ROCK!!
