Nancy Bauer, née Luke (b. July 7, 1934 (b. Chelmsford, Massachusetts) Canadian writer and editor and longtime resident of New Brunswick.
This is her fourth novel.
"Nancy Bauer has the ability to create some of the most memorable female characters in contemporary literature. For Samara the Wholehearted, she has written a coming-of-age story, centred around Samara, an imaginative young woman whose maturity is marked by an impulsive examinatiion of the inner life.
A profoundly religious writer with a lively interest in Eastern spirituality, Bauer transports her readers in this novel to the slightly tilted world of Summerland, a communal summer retreat. Here she introduces Samara, her perpetually adolescent half-brother Fred, a disabled genius named Marty and a host of off-beat characters who form an unusual extended family in a world filled with marvel. Mixing rarefied prose with the traditional techniques of story-telling and postmodern innovation, Bauer produces a novel which is both technically adept and intensely memorable.
Part I. Summerland
Part II. Another Place.
Part III. Winterland.
