Pierre’s father was financially ruined because he apparently made the mistake of giving all/most of his personal fortune to David Martin, an employee he fired. We brainstormed about strategy for her new book, and I came away once again entranced, but also energized. The murder this time is one I was saddened by; the murderer was one I felt so strongly about that I hollered at the pages, "Don't do it! Either the parents were failed parents, or they were not–I am not up for the ‘they were loving but could not make their love understood’ club. Both Beauvoir and Gamache find it hard to be completely objective however: Gamache because he's friends with Peter and Clara Morrow; and Beauvoir because he has an odd interest in Chef Véronique, who seems familiar to him.

The body of the beautiful Julia Martin, one of the Morrow sisters, turns up on the grounds of Manoir Bellechasse, next to the newly installed statue which is a memorial to the late Charles Morrow, Julia's estranged father. There are many parents, male and female, who have physical handicaps who do not let that stand in the way of loving their children. But the incident that triggered the murder was a long time ago and the victim didn’t have anything to do with it.When he spends a rare day off in Three Pines with Reine-Marie, he discovers the answer to the puzzle of the statue: Sugar had been placed between the statue and its base, making it easier to move. He secretly played a cruel trick on her that had disastrous effects, causing the family to be forever ruptured. I felt irritation with him, impatience with him, unhappiness with him, and often mad at him on Clara’s behalf throughout the novels.

However, Penny deliberately flouts this style when she wants to hide information—or mislead the reader. We are given hints though that Irene Morrow Finney was trained in her own upbringing NEVER to show weakness and especially to her husband. The Inspector himself is busy discussing poems and having philosophical (and pointless) conversations about his father with his father’s old friend. Children play in the sunshine, lamb is roasted, bees hover over spilled Coke, and for a while, the Gamaches revel in the summertime celebration.Clara came to the reunion to protect Peter from this horrid family, but that becomes difficult when Peter seems to regress in their presence, almost not in control of his own voice anymore—which is a source of at least one fight between the couple while they’re there. wrote: "Louise is very important to Canadians for settings and politics of our own, from the get go. Armand Gamache was his usual charming self and this time his charming wife was very much in evidence too.

Sandra: Thomas’ wife, seemingly bursting at the seams with insecurity and unhappiness and constantly making unreasonable demands on the staff of the Manoir Bellechasse. The beautiful Manoir Bellechasse might be surrounded by nature, but there is something unnatural looming. When the last members of the family arrive, Gamache and Reine-Marie are delighted to discover that it is their friends, Peter and Clara Morrow, from the village of Three Pines. Chief Inspector Gamache and his wife Reine-Marie, are celebrating their thirty-five-year wedding anniversary by staying at Manoir Bellechasse for a few days. After the incident on the roof, Beauvior tells Gamache that he looked like a Burgher of Calais, that he was frightened.

In the prologue, we meet the magnificent Manoir Bellechasse and its many makers, and its troublesome history before being turned into the finest auberges in Quebec. The rich, cultured, respectable Finney family, an old- or no money family, living in a meritocracy, graces their presence in this remote auberge. We don’t get the sense that ANY of the Morrow siblings feel that their parents loved them–that’s probably one main reason they keep coming to these dratted reunions– in a forlorn hope that maybe, at long last, their mother will tell them their father loved them, or she will throw out some crumb of loving kindness. In the Bible when it is said that the sins of the father are visited upon the children I believe it is in this manner it is meant.
