Wow, I went through this series unable to stop, in love with the setting, each and every character, their stories, their hopes and dreams, and wishing there was yet another book. Lovely writing, Ms. Guenette! Thank you.

No Compass to Right–Stepping Out

Hodge Publishing’s Mari Howard, author of Baby, Baby and the Labyrinth Year (check out my Amazon review!), has read and reviewed the entire Crater Lake Series. Here’s her endorsement for the latest book’s Amazon page:

Gentle, compassionate storytelling, inclusive and character-led. ‘No Compass to Right’ is a compelling, warm, and delightful book. I loved it.

Hodge Publishing has provided a thorough and thoughtful critique of No Compass to Right over on their website under their – What we’re reading – section. The review contrasts the experience of reading my novel at the same time as Joanna Cannon’s, Goats and Sheep. In the case of this review, contrast definitely leads to depth. Many thanks. Please hop over and check the Hodge Publishing site.

Book Sale Table for Canada Day

Bruce had to pinch hit for me at a selling event in Port Alice on Canada Day. I was away in High River, Alberta with family. I think he did a super job with his table. He even provided a flowering plant and a baby pic of the missing author. Now that is dedication to a cause.

A Novel to Deepen One’s Humanity – Amazon reviewer

I rarely read contemporary novels (Marge Piercy and Barbara Kingsolver being notable exceptions), but once I read the first chapter of this one “just to check it out,” I was hooked. The psychologically-true and compassionate descriptions of each unique, complex character, blended with the real-life-like plot twists, kept me eagerly reading on. I resonated with the wisdom of the life lessons and insights each character developed, and their processes of growth and discovery catalyzed new insights in me. I appreciated the multisensory richness of the scenery, creating a vivid setting in which these extraordinary “ordinary” people move, stumble and grow in deeply realistic and moving ways. The plotting is intricate and well-woven, easy to follow if one pays attention — which is easy because the characters are so engaging and interesting. I grew to care about them, so I’m glad there’s a sequel. Best of all, I was reminded that everyone has a story, and if one knows these stories, one can never judge another human being, even while deploring some of the things they do. Reading this book, taking in the courage, vulnerability, and honest communication amongst the characters as the story progressed, I felt my own humanity was deepened.

Coastal Vibrations–New Release

Coastal Vibrations E-book

Two short stories from the acclaimed author of the Crater Lake Series. Readers are invited to experience heartbreak and fresh starts amid a rural, coastal landscape splashed onto each page with vibrant, deft strokes. In an isolated logging camp, a wife struggles against a husband who is out of control. What will become of her young daughter if she cannot escape? Danger stalks her no matter which way she turns. An older woman mourns the loss of her independence and ponders what is left for her to contribute in a life hat has lost relevance. Can she find meaning in the face of a child? Coastal Vibrations presents bitter realities in hard-fought races with hope. Only the reader can judge which has triumphed.

This new release is a little gem I’ve been working on amid other projects. A perfect read with your morning coffee, on the bus or over lunch. Enjoy!
