Postcards from Three Pines: A Better Man

Writing A Better Man, but also taking photos, to show TV people what homes in Three Pines might look like. Hope they get it right! They visited from UK and of course there was a storm.
Oh, also went on tour. Here’s a shot from the stage at one event for Kingdom. Very exciting!
Hope you’re well.

Love,

AN EXCERPT FROM A BETTER MAN

All sorts of things woke up in the spring. With the warmer weather. Bears. Chipmunks. Skunks and racoons. And rivers.
They came to life.
There were few things more powerful, or destructive, or terrifying, than a hungry bear or a river in full flood.
Gamache knew exactly where the river was heading. While he’d never been along this road before, he knew the area. They weren’t all that far from his own village.
Which meant the roar they heard was the Rivière Bella Bella, heading straight into Three Pines.
He took out his phone to call Reine-Marie, to warn her and find out how things were, but Cameron was right. There was no signal.
He clicked the phone off, put it back in his pocket, and turned to look up the muddy road.
“Come on,” he said, and started the climb.
