"She was 37, a single, sad freelance fisheries reporter and writer living in Vancouver, on Canada's West Coast. He was 59, a widowed, heartbroken journalist and author, lviing in a small village on Isle Madame, Cape Breton, on Canada's East Coast. They met in a coffee shop in Vancouver on a brilliant spring morning, he on a book tour and she the reporter sent to interview him. They talked and talked -- and their lives changed forever. After 800 e-mails, countless phone calls and three letters of rejection, she agreed to start seeing him -- but she wasnever going to leave her beloved West Coast, her family, friends, horses a nd dogs. Silver Donald Cameron was, however, one 'cussedly stubborn man'. Award-winning writer and journalist, Marjorie Simmins tells this story of love and resistance with humour and candour. Times of overwhelming happiness and flattering grief are set against the backdrop of an East Coast Canadianworld she found as foreign as an travel abroad. The two coasts had differe nt food, fish, music, language, history and culture. Even the ocean smelleddifferent, the saltier Atlantic so much more pungent. She came to love tho se differences fiercely -- and she also fiercely loves the man who told hershe was brave enough to 'jump off a cliff -- and tell a damn fine story at the other end'." - from rear.Very good.
