Kelowna reading : Shelter
Frances Greenslade's latest novel, Shelteris the story of two sisters, Maggie and Jenny, and their quest to find out what happened to their mother who left them to billet in Williams Lake, a small town in British Columbia, and never came back. Set in the 1960s and 70s in the wilds of the Chilcotin, where it's still possible to lose yourself, the novel explores the attachment we have to our mothers, and the expectation we hold that they will always be our mothers, and nothing more.

Last evening our book club discussed "Shelter" selection for this month was well received by the 10 members present. Everyone enjoyed your writing and the story. It was neat to view it all thru the 12 year olds eyes ...there was much reminiscing and new ideas presented and discussed ...we have one member who has lived in Williams Lake and at Soda Creek ...loved having her share her stories which added to our enjoyment and emphasized the research you had done in that area....many of us were from that era as well....thanks for a good read .....
