Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Are there wounds too deep to heal, pains too sharp to share? And if a family survives by cutting the ties that bind them, can they ever be whole again?

After losing her mother to illness and her father to his work, Nora Mackenzie must leave her home in the interior of B.C. for a North Vancouver school. Estranged from her classmates, her family, and the life she's lost, Nora walls herself off from the people around her. At the same time, her young cousin Lizzie is facing an uncertain future as one of the first children to undergo open-heart surgery. As the operation approaches, Nora discovers that she is not the only person in her family isolated by fear and grief.

Synopsis:

It's 1960 in North Vancouver and twelve-year-old Nora feels as sad and soggy as the weather. She's moved to a new city, her mother has just died, and no one likes her at the new school. When her cousin Lizzie is about to have risky open-heart surgery, she begins to reach out, forcing those around her to deal with their own struggles.

Synopsis:

When 12 year old Nora learns that her favourite cousin, Lizzie, is about to have risky open-heart surgery, she wonders if her family will ever feel whole again, and if she can find the courage to mend her own broken heart.
