A Sense of Place
Prince Edward Island past and present meet in this collection of essays. In A Sense of Place, Margaret Westlie combines reminiscences of her girlhood with reflections on the web of community we create through music, gift-giving and sharing the news.
Margaret Westlie also explores the sources of her creativity. The essays in “The Writing Life” offer insight into how she finds her inspiration, her use of prompts and cues to write spontaneously, and the theme of mothers and motherhood in her novels. “The Writing Life” concludes with two previously unpublished short stories.
In “Second Sight,” the final section of this book, you will encounter the paranormal as it has surprised the author in card reading, premonitions and uncanny experiences. Two new short stories open this world to you.
Read A Sense of Place and discover the world behind the novels of Margaret A. Westlie.
