Congrats on the Goodreads win and I hope you enjoy the book. I absolutely adore your quest to read 50 Canadian-themed/authored books this year, and I do still identify as Canadian.

“No matter how she had suffered, Darby hadn’t retreated from life after all. In fact, she’d embraced it. Quietly, carefully, but with dignity and love.”
Fiona Davis, The Dollhouse

“So how did you get into journalism?” “In high school I worked on the paper. Then I majored in journalism in college. I loved collecting facts and then making a story out of them. The perfect combo of science and art. How about you?” “I”
Fiona Davis, The Dollhouse

“Isn’t she a gem? You never know who you’re going to meet here. Now that you’re living in the greatest city in the world, anything is possible.” Of course that was Stella’s perspective. With her beauty and steady work, she had an independence Darby envied.”
Fiona Davis, The Dollhouse
