Product Description

About the Author

A born-and-bred West Coaster, A. S. Penne lives at the edge of the Strait of Georgia in Sechelt, British Columbia, where she writes and teaches. Her writing has won acclaim on both sides of the Atlantic, from the Ian St. James Awards in the U.K. (1994 and 1995) and the Writer's Digest in the US (1994). In Canada, she was a finalist in the prestigious Western Magazine Awards (2000) and was given honorable mention by the judges of the Norman Epstein Creative Writing Competition (1993). Old Stones is her first book. In 1999-2000, Penne spent several months reading archival material at Glasgow's Mitchell Library and London's Public Records Office, and she is now working with that material on a creative non-fiction work about early BC settlers. A collection of her short fiction is being compiled for future publication. Please visit www.aspenne.com.

Format: Paperback
Old Stones: The Biography Of A Family by A. s. Penne is the "creative nonfiction" story of a family shaped by hard times, change, war, and the courage to begin a new life. The tale of a young war bride who dared to follow her amputee husband into an uncertain future, and the emotions and experiences of their daughter's exploration of the mementos of history and remembrances of personal toil make for a powerful and captivating story that resonates on multiple levels. Old Stones is literate, original, entertaining, emotionally rewarding, deftly written, and highly recommended reading.
