two generations...second chance at love

The 1990s setting of East of the Sun in the Vancouver BC region is authentic since that was when and where I wrote it. It's a romance, but it's also a mother/daughter story and I loved writing it. My grandmother passed away due to complications of Alzheimer's Disease. I remember very clearly the moment when she forgot who I was. It was heartbreaking.
