Description

Filled with heartache without being maudlin, this contemporary novel about life and love in a small town debuts Lesley Crewe, Cape Breton's most original new literary voice. Lesley's writing is fresh and funny, and her portrayal of the Cape Breton spirit- strong and wry in the face of adversity- is unwaveringly authentic. As is Lexie: not since Bridget Jones has a heroine been so well drawn and so totally lovable- hang-ups, insecurities, annoying mother and all.

In creating Lexie, her sprawling extended family, and their community, Lesley Crewe restores the humour that the best literature of the Island is missing- that teasing, biting, whip-smart style that simultaneously stings and tickles. With her charming combination of hometown warmth and savoir-faire, Lesley is sure to entertain and inspire her audience, who will do well to sit up and pay attention to this rising star of mainstream women's fiction.
