Discussion on “A Return to Three Pines: Bury Your Dead

  1. Susan says:

    I love the one set in the monastery.

    • Rolene says:

      I’ll join you there! So much intrigue, so much solitude, such wonderful visions of chants echoing off the walls. Since reading this, I’ve purchased and played Gregorian Chants every Sunday morning…so peaceful.

    • Barbara Johnson says:

      So do I.

    • Jane Holland says:

      I can barely read that one, with the devastating fall of Jean-Guy. I adore Bury Your Dead, my favourite of the lot I think and it makes me want to visit Quebec City.

      • Rhea Feldman says:

        Yes I believe it was my favorite also. Would love also to go back to Québec City – I was there in 1963….il y’a très longtemps !

    • Lynne says:

      I, too, loved the monastery setting. Learning about Gregorian chants was an added gift…listening to them has become a favorite backdrop for me daily meditation and a calming sleep aid.

    • Lizzy says:

      Ah! Me too Susan. I’ve just stated to re-read the whole series, which I’m really enjoying, but I’m aware that I’m waiting for this one to come up. It’s definitely the book that has stood out to me the most from the whole series.

  2. Vicky says:

    I loved learning more about Paris, although I also enjoy hearing about Quebec.

  3. Lynne Sisk says:

    I loved the monastery setting too. That book was one of my favorites.

  4. Lori says:

    For alternate setting, I’d have to choose Quebec. It’s now on my bucket list to visit! But my favorite BOOK set outside Three Pines is A Beautiful Mystery.

  5. Rebecca Soendlin says:

    I reread Bury Your Dead on a cruise that included Quebec City. What a delight to see the sites mentioned in the book. It also fascinated me in this book that the big raid in the factory was never it’s own book. It was always seen in snippets of memory. Love all the books. How the Light Gets In is my top favorite.

  6. Faye Binsfeld says:

    The walking tour based on Bury Your Dead was outstanding! Our guide knew the book and its settings and knew Quebec and its history so we spent a most enjoyable time with her. Highly recommend!

    • Robin says:

      They have walking tours for this book. What a brilliant thing to do! I look forward to taking one of those someday soon. Post-pandemic.

    • Susan Bruce says:

      I agree. I loved the Walking tour of Quebec City. It was also fascinating doing the tour with others from all over who knew the books and loved them as much as I do.

  7. Natalie Twaddel says:

    Quebec is magical, not far from my home in Maine. When I was in my early 20’s , my friend and I went to the winter carnival. A lady came up to us and asked if we would go on the ice slide with her daughter, because she didn’t want to go alone, well yes of course !! Long story short, we stayed with them a few nights. One night we had drinks served on a silver platter with white gloves at the Citadel. Then we danced the night away through a secret door into a glass floored disco. Our host was a Ambassador…what are the chances ?!

  8. Kay Sheets says:

    Quebec City

  9. Carolyn says:

    This is one of my favorite 3 pines books, would love to visit Quebec. “A beautiful mystery” always makes me sad because of Jean-Guys storyline.

  10. Carolyn Warner says:

    Quebec City would be my choice and I agree with the previous post about The Beautiful Mystery for the same reason. Probably that was my least favorite in the series having read all of them

  11. E Marriott says:

    Bury Your Dead and old Quebec city.

    Since reading the book i’ve visited Quebec twice and followed much of the Gamache ‘trail’, thank you Louise for both a reintroduction to the history of Quebec and a marvellous mystery story.

  12. Louise A. says:

    The Gamache series inspired me to see Canada for myself. In 2015 I took the train across the country… it was a magical journey! One of my stops was in Quebec City and I was able to go on the Bury Your Dead tour…we even stopped in for Sugar Pie. Quebec is my favorite and I hope to see more of the Eastern Townships in the future (including Knowlton!) Thank you, Louise for inspiring us all!

  13. Millie C. says:

    My introduction to the Gamache series was at the monastery but my favorite location outside of Three Pines is Quebec City. In fact having read all in the Three Pines series, I visited Montreal and Quebec City in 2018 and was very happy for it. Had I known about the Bury Your Dead tour I would have planned to do it. Thank you for opening me to a new adventure.

  14. Linda Stewart says:

    I am on my fifth reading of the series. I love all the books because of the depth of each character by the writer. Waiting for the new book.

  15. Lori Meed says:

    I love the one set in France with the whole family and his old friend, Stephen Horowitz. I grew up in Quebec, and was conceived in the Eastern To ships where Three Pines is located.
