Description

Everyone has a story in them and Holly Kowalski is no exception. A successful dentist with two grown children, living alone in Toronto, she decides to write her autobiography, which leads her through poignant and painful memories of the triumphs and tragedies of her life. Dorris Heffron tells the engrossing tale of Holly's awkward childhood; her entrapment in her pursuit for middle-class respectability through her marriage to Paul, a successful dentist; and the horrific moment of violence that forever changes her life, and forces her to forge a new beginning for herself and her children. A Shark In The House is a story of love and ambition, death and survival, and the strangeness that lurks within the most seemingly ordinary lives. (1996)
