Description

"...one of those rare books--a satisfying mystery that has no criminal content whatsoever ... even the most hidebound mystery reader is likely to be delighted by this well-written and intriguing tale."

 

--The Toronto Star

 

"...a worthy successor to her short fiction collection ... Woodward interweaves several intriguing narrative threads into this intense first-person tale of [Mercy's] actual and mental journeys to discover family, past and present, that will give her life wholeness...enhancing this narrative is the delightfully witty voice of Mercy Brown."

 

--Canadian Literature

 

When Mercy Brown, a reluctant psychic and freelance journalist, discovers her late Aunt Ginger's diaries, packed with early Canadian dance history and a painful past, she realizes that she has two mysteries to sort out. Mercy Brown and her dog Sadie embark on a writing assignment up the Alaska Highway.

 

A BC bestseller, Alaska Highway Two-Step was selected as one of The Globe & Mail's Top 100 Books. Caroline Woodward's sharp wit and unerring ability to create warm, believable characters make this a delightful novel of the North.
