This book by Joanna Lilley captures life in the Northern climates of Canada. It is colder in winter and darker in that there isn’t as much daylight in winter. However, it is a warm and inviting place where relationships matter and people dynamics matter a whole lot.
The book is filled with poetry that will move the reader to see beyond the facades of appearances. It is a book that will force the reader to turn inward and to envisage the words expressed.
The north is described as a sparse place. Some of the lyrics are odd yet they are refreshingly honest and open which is probably representative of the people who live in the north. What a gem of a book.
