Book DescriptionAlyson Thomson has left the city for a simpler life on an abandoned farm with her lover, Walker, a potter. Wandering there, she uncovers, in the ruins of a log cabin, the writings of a young woman who lived more than a hundred years before. Into Alyson's story Merilyn Simonds weaves the moving tale of Margaret MacBayne, who, with her family, left behind hardship in a seaside Scottish town in the hope of building a new home in the Canadian wilderness. Margaret, an expert on herbs, contemplates revenge when her brothers rob her of her happiness. When Alyson too suffers great loss, she must decide if retribution is worth the price.
About the AuthorMerilyn Simonds (25 September 1949) She is the author of eighteen books, including the creative nonfiction classic, The Convict Lover, a finalist for the Governor General’s Award and inspiration for Judith Thompson’s recent play, Hot House. After 22 years in print, ECW Press released a new edition in 2018 as part of their BackLit series of Canadian Classics. In 2017, Project Bookmark Canada erected a plaque in Kingston, Ontario, to honour the place of The Convict Lover in Canada’s literary landscape. Simonds’ other books include The Lion in the Room Next Door; a bestselling novel, The Holding; a travel memoir, Breakfast at the Exit Café co-written with her husband Wayne Grady; and a collection of personal essays, A New Leaf. Her work is published and anthologized internationally.
