"The unexpected luxury of a day spent at the home of a movie
star leads three old friends to divulge secret facets of their
lives, both tragic and triumphant.
Excited to return to the home of her youth after a lifetime
away, a woman learns that the life of a childhood friend has
been a bleak, awful shadow of her own.
The streets of Vancouver seem to glitter with promises of
love and success, but a young man is forced to perceive the
grittier reality that hides beneath.
These are only a few of the stirring, unforgettable, often
heartbreaking stories in a lyrical collection exploring life and
love, terror and joy, fury and deep sorrow. Above all the tales
explore the bonds of family and friendship, while celebrating
the Newfoundlander's vital sense of identity. This body of
work will resonate deeply in the hearts of readers everywhere
who cherish subtle, eloquent evocative fiction.
