The first contemporary novel by Canadian author Wayne Grady. A story of a Father, his daughter, and their relationship through the years. Told from both the daughter (Daphne) and father’s (Harry) point of view, we see two sides of the same relationship. This novel is a unique look into a strained parent-child relationship that helps us understand compounding emotions of regret, loss, and addiction. In the end, redemption, family, and love take center stage, but the journey is not easy. This novel is set in both Toronto and Vancouver, showing us varying perspectives on family, geography, and experience.
