While I vacationed on the beautiful Saguenay Fjord this month my baby, otherwise known as A Book of Kells: Growing Up in an Ego Void, was in the hands of Dunlop House Books. Their background in teaching English and History, and their expertise in writing prehistoric fiction was turned to reviewing my work and accepting me as a member associate. Here’s what they have to say:

“A unique story, all the more compelling because it is true.  A young seaman marries an English bride and carries her off to his preaching and teaching Mission at God’s Lake, a community of 328 Swampy Crees located six hundred miles northeast of Winnipeg, Canada.  The reader is swept along with them, paddling the fur trade routes and keeping tabs on a mission, establishing a church and a farm, suffering terrible winters and thriving on northern summers. They find themselves alone in a frozen universe trying to find a place for their baby to be born.

The story does not stop there. The Great Depression and World War II intervene.   The missionaries’ grown child must find a delicate balance between ego and soul. The adults, away from the romance of the North must live a difficult life and perhaps it is only in the future that their daughter will rescue her parents’ lost egos.

This is not just a northern adventure, it is a journey into the souls of its characters.”
