Scare the Light Away
Recently widowed Rebecca McKenzie, a successful Vancouver businesswoman, returns to small-town Hope River after an absence of 30 years to attend her mother's funeral.
Estranged from her father and two older siblings, she's left a brutal childhood and a psychopathic grandfather behind. She expects her visit home to be short. But then she discovers the diaries written by her mother, a British war bride with a young baby who came to Canada to join a husband she scarcely knew. Rebecca finds her heart wrung by her mother's story.
Meanwhile, a young girl has gone missing, and the suspicions of the townspeople fall on Rebecca's handsome, charming brother Jimmy. Before long, violence threatens and Rebecca must put aside some long-held grievances to understand the crime.
This debut novel will appeal to readers of Jacqueline Winspear's Maisie Dobbs and of Pip Granger's Not All Tarts Are Apple and Trouble in Paradise, evoking admiration, respect, and sympathy for members of The Greatest Generation, both English and Canadian.
