Wow. So good. And I'm not just saying that because the author is one of my favourite professors. I didn't know what to expect going in. I read fantasy, with some sci-fi and young adult books thrown in for good measure. This is not my usual genre. But it hooked me right from the beginning.

One of the first things I noticed was the details that were mentioned. It seems like they were different details than most authors would mention. It's hard to describe, but I found it made me relate to the chara

LOVED this new book... It takes place in Winnipeg, Manitoba, and employs an interesting story that takes place in the present... Additionally, there's a second story woven in - folks doing seances in the city in the early twentieth century. The paranormal peice of it comes from "real life" - from the Archives at the University of Manitoba.
In short: Well-written, compelling plot, with the added benefit of a strange-but-true story from the city's history embedded in it...

Brave. Disquieting. Images from this book are still vivid for me a couple of years after reading it: drinking wine at the counter, explaining one's bookshelf to one's lover, the passion of Naomi and Ruth vs practical partnership of Ruth and Lon.
