"Using the bustling river town as her backdrop, Susan Cameron presents eleven short stories that mix the mundane with the extraordinary. Family, jobs, obligations - all tie the individual characters to their community through generations of town life. "There is Ruby, who comes to town in 1920 to start afresh. Donald who must leave it in 1950because of the memories that haunt him. Margie, a little girl who tries to understand the strange things that grownups say. Wayne, who dreams of the Exhibition when he should be paying attention in school. "Themes of change,hope, regret, grief, and love run through these stories, all told with a v oice that is by turns whimsical, sorrowful, surprising. Author Susan Cameron grew up in Bridgewater shaped by the influences of a place that was 'the center of my own universe until I went away to university.' She interweavessymbolic landmarks - the river, the old bridge, the school house, the ceme tery - with the observations of her characters as they deal with life-changing moments." - rear cover.
