Description

Bird Shadows is a playful tale of eccentricities, misconceptions, and misogyny. While working on a personal spiritual project, an irreverent artist encourages her religious sister to rethink the marriage that seems to be killing her soul.

The people in the quaint little Bay of Fundy fishing village of Brood Bay will not soon forget the events of 1995. It was an outrage! A good Christian family was torn apart by the wicked influence of a mentally unbalanced, morally challenged artist. Pastor Wallace was appalled by the improper, if not evil, behaviour that had taken place right under his nose. His sympathies were most certainly with the abandoned husband, Warren, deacon of the church, generous and innocent man of God. But was Warren as innocent as he appeared?

Not according to his sister-in-law, Rube. She had always seen through the posing and the praying, but she had her own problems to deal with. Since the death of her father, Rube had noticed an inordinate amount of religious symbolism in her dreams. What was that all about? As Rube sifted through her dreams, panning for God, her sister, Helen, struggled to be a good wife to her fundamentalist husband, Warren. Helen purchased a video camera (it was 1995) in a sentimental attempt to record happy memories of her family. That backfired in a big way. Instead, Helen was confronted with evidence that her children, as well as her husband, were treating her disrespectfully. She deserved better and set out to get it.
