B a doctor with a bruised heart a pharmacist who may be a witch and a teacher with dark secrets Together they raise this child with the mysterious heritage transforming this story into an ode to friendship and family a sonnet on our relationship with nature and an elegy to love and passion The Douglas Notebooks was originally published in French as Les carnets de Douglas This edition was translated by Sheila Fischman Short VersionA fairy tale that’s true It’s well written short and to the point filled with thoughts to ponder on a myriad of subjects It wasn’t meant to be published but was written as a gift to a friend who thought it was so good the manuscript was submitted Originally written in French and set in the post war rural townships of uebec it was translated by a multi award winner for translation The story is short and will make you think It’s about individuals and community love and family rural and agrarian living and supposed progress It’s an easy pleasurable read and you’ll be thinking about it long after you’re finished reading it Longer VersionThe Douglas Notebooks was originally written in French by Christine Eddie and translated into English by the multi awarding winning translator Sheila Fischman It was recommended by CBC Books – a Canadian Literature Discussion Group in a Bookish Advent Event – which provided daily suggestions in December for books leading up to Christmas The recommended books were often wintery; sometimes feel good and all were touted as great choices to savour inside away from the harsh elements with something to sip or a fire to warm you While many diverse titles were suggested The Douglas Notebooks appealed to me because I’d been impressed with other books that Fischman has translated and the recommender described the novel as being “Beautifully written full of heart but never cloyingly sentimental Eddie's book feels like one for the ages relevant and lovely” – just what I was looking forThe book didn’t disappoint While the book’s introduction and publisher’s description calls it a fable I wouldn’t categorize it as such However it does feature animals predominantly and there is definitely a pastoral element to the book In fact a major feature of the book is nature in all its wonder – the forest the birds the river etcetera all playing prominent roles Eddie’s uality of writing about them was uite special – light lyrical and lovely The story features a certain time just after WW11 and a certain place likely small town rural uebec before major expansion and development It was like stepping back in time into villages nestled into spaces where the forests had been cleared to make the perfect spot to build a homes and a village beside a river All the villagers knew each other and each had a specialty or trade to offer so that the villagers could be self sufficient without having any need to travel far Effectively it was a simpler agrarian way of life where one was nourished emotionally and physically by the surrounding land and waterThe book is also a love story and a story of family of friends and community of commercial progress and the loss of the many of the old ways of living The story touches upon loneliness and poor parenting; and demonstrates how fragile children are in their formative years and how they can be permanently damaged when constantly criticized not supported or loved This damage is heartbreaking but the story is eually uplifting in showing how just one heart and a bit of kindness can make a huge difference and create a great deal of joy and positivity powerful enough to reverse years of negative impact Despite some serious subjects I found the book to be buoyant and hopefulI thought the review from BA Markus in mRB Montreal Review of Books that I read after the fact summarized the book uite well “Eddie has written a modern fairy tale full of magical moments and literary elegance a veritable treasure for any reader who is hunting for a book that will console and inspire” Here is the full review if you’re interested I thought it was a well written review with lots of pertinent information I knew that The Douglas Notebooks was a debut novel I had no idea that Eddie had never intended to publish it She had written it solely as a gift for a friend At her friend’s urging Eddie submitted it to a publisher and it thankfully went to printI highly recommend The Douglas Notebooks It is sweet lyrical and magical It is small in terms of length but huge in terms of all that it encompasses It is filled with simplicity wisdom imagination and love It a tale of life and simpler times and freuently causes one to stop and reflect upon – what have we lost and why did we choose to lose it In fact did we even choose or did it just happen How can we learn from this about creating a world we want to live in In everyday life Eddie gives us a myriad of layered topics to think about and does so in a very charming and poetic way The Douglas Notebooks is definitely worth a first readand many many Second ReadingThe Douglas Notebooks by Christine Eddie was such a delightful read for me the first time around that I wanted to re read it again to see if I still thought it was as pleasurable magical and still made me reflect and ponder a lot And all this found in a first novel a novel the author did not even think about publishing but rather gave it away as a gift to a friend Once again this book not only met but surpassed my expectations It's a short book but packed full of wisdom and memories of a time and lifestyle that's disappearing I'm soon to begin reading Beartown by Fredrik Backman which is also a book about a small community in the middle of the forest;

Later renames Douglas for the strongest and most spectacular of trees Later a child named Rose is born Fade to black When the story takes up again Douglas has returned to the forest Rose is in the village under the care of others and Elena is gone From these disparate threads Christine Eddie tenderly weaves a fable for our time and for all times As the years pass the story broadens to capture others in its elegant we Not my usual summer reading or any season fare however this slim volume has emotion depth and is beautifully and lyrically written I almost wish my French reading skills were better because this is one fable I'd love to digest in it's original language instead of a translation
