What follows is an excerpt from www.carolinewoodward.ca on Penny Loves Wade, Wade Loves Penny.
In this long-awaited novel, Caroline Woodward returns to her Peace River roots. Penny Loves Wade, Wade Loves Penny is a contemporary story about middle-aged love enduring despite prolonged separations. The story winds around Penny Toland, resolute ranch wife and part-time teacher, and her husband, Wade, reluctant rancher and good man, adrift behind the wheel of his long-haul truck.
Wade loops south on an odyssey from the Peace River region to the West Coast and across the province through the Okanagan and Kootenays. At home, Penny endures covetous neighbours, not-so-friendly bank managers, and suave strangers, while Wade encounters lotus-landers, biker gangs, and a ravishing all-woman country punk band called The Sireens. As the first winter blizzard blankets the north country, Wade makes a desperate push home to prove his love for Penny.
Please join us for this event.
Join Angie in celebrating the launch of her new novel along with live band, Shred Kelly.
In The Canterbury Trail, it’s the last ski weekend of the season in the ski-town of Coalton. As a surprise dump coats the hills, several opposing groups of townsfolk embark on a mountain adventure that will change their lives. With a mordant blend of humour and heartbreak, Angie Abdou explores the way in which we treat our fellow citizens and the landscape we love.

What a fun website (other than the hand that kept getting in the way.) Rod and Dwight are big Roald Dahl fans and ever since I saw the movie Fantastic Mr Fox I’ve been wanting to get into his world a little more.
