Readers have described In the Wake as a page-turner, an unconventional suspense novel that explores complicated family relationships with humorous, understated dialogue. It’s part suspense and part family drama with a dash of ghost story.
The jury for the Atlantic book awards commented: “An impressive first novel full of beautiful prose that lulls you into an enthralling story like waves lapping on the shore. The author deftly handles the subjects of mental illness, marital discord, grief and loss with sensitivity, intelligence and a subtlety which is quite simply remarkable.”
The Miramichi Reader’s review said: "A novel that contains a mild, but ever-present strain of suspense and an undertone of distrust amongst its protagonists, which makes for the type of novel that keeps you reading until the final page.”
I'm hard at work on another novel (or two). Stay tuned.
