Tara McGowan-Ross has a narrative voice I cannot resist. I felt immediately connected to her style, even before the Canadian familiarity took its roots. There was something blunt and beautiful reflecting off its own self-imposed complex vulnerability that kept me going to the end, feeling like I was being told a story by a friend.




“All good books are the same and when you read a good book you realize it’s already passed on to you and then that book becomes yours whatever good or bad or enjoyable in it. There are evils, sadness, people, towns and seasons there, they all become yours.” (Ernest Hemingway)
