West Wind, North Chatter
After a miscarriage that tears apart her hope and her marriage, Emily Reeves is forced to reinvent herself. Fighting loneliness, but determined to stick it out in her new home in Grande Prairie, Alberta, Emily pours her savings into her dream: opening an Internet coffee shop. Through snippets of email correspondence and whispered gossip across steaming cups of coffee we are given a window into the lives of characters who are alike in so many ways, yet strangers to one another. As Emily begins to heal, she discovers that assumptions are often wrong and that reaching out to form deeper connections with strangers, friends, lovers, and family, leads to fulfillment. Edited by Robert Kroetsch, West Wind, North Chatter tenderly weaves a poignant tale of the despair, loneliness and triumph that is at the very heart of the human condition.
