Meet the MacKenna family of Calgary. At first glance, an ordinary, middle-class Canadian family, but close as this family is, they each have a rich inner life that they feel bound to keep private. In this trilogy of three novellas you will discover:
Karen: shy and lonely in her childhood, she finds great happiness and great pain when Dan, her brother Eric’s close friend, comes into her life. But their relationship is burdened by secrets that they have promised to reveal to no one else.
Ginny: the matriarch. A bitter divorcée, she staunchly oversees her children’s lives. And then she finds happiness late in life from an unexpected source.
Eric: Karen’s gifted brother, the fair-haired boy whose life always seems to go as planned. Except it doesn’t quite, and he, too, carries his own secrets.
Join Karen, Ginny, and Eric as they grow and change and learn about themselves. Come look inside…
