I just finished reading The Last Stonecaster, by first time Toronto novelist Howard J Breen. It is an awesome book! Breen has truly hit a home run with this effort!
The story’s central character, Charlie Langdon, is a successful Toronto-based advertising executive who loses everything. He then flees the city and travels north to Muskoka where a chance encounter with an elderly mystic changes his life. The book also weaves the lives of no less than 12 characters in a fascinating tale of betrayal, transformation and love.
Breen self-published the book through FriesenPress, a Victoria BC based assisted self-publisher. That it is self published diminishes his work in no way. It is very much a page turner, well written and compelling!
If you want to read a terrific novel while supporting a budding novelist, I highly recommend it! You won’t be disappointed!
Have an awesomely novel day!
