  • Great Day Fer Livin'

    A Great Day Fer Livin’ (2nd edition)

    After living in Australia for 18 years, Juliet Wilson returned to Prince Edward Island for an extended stay. The Island’s allure hit her front on: not just the vibration of the gently rolling landscape, with its patchwork quilt of red soil and emerald fields, but the beauty of the people who make up the rich fabric of the Island, their sense of place, and their way of being.She spent the summer of 2009 driving the back roads of Prince Edward Island, introducing herself to people she met on the wharves and in the fields and in their shops, and getting to know them by listening to their stories and eventually photographing them. Like an informal anthropological study, this book gives a glimpse into the culture, belief, and practices of the primary producers who make up the backbone of Prince Edward Island.

  • Sea of Spectres Cover

    A Sea of Spectres

    On the choppy coastline of Prince Edward Island, an ocean-phobic detective evades the deadly lure of a phantom ship by delving into her family’s history and harnessing her matrilineal powers of premonition.

    Raina is an accomplished detective working against smugglers and traffickers on PEI, and she’s eager for an imminent promotion. But there’s a catch: she has to go work on a Coast Guard ship for a week. And Raina, though Island born and raised, loathes the sea. When she gets too close to it, the phantom ship starts calling to her, and the lure of its deadly cold flames threatens to overwhelm her.

    When she starts pulling the threads of a missing-person case, she discovers how Doiron women’s uncanny abilities have impacted her ancestral line: Madeleine’s powers tried to keep her family safe during the Expulsion of the Acadians in 1758; Celeste’s tempted her to take back what was rightfully hers in 1864. Generation after generation of women have had to reckon with what their abilities can and can’t do to protect their families. And now it’s Raina’s turn. Is she strong enough to carry her family’s legacy? Or will that legacy carry her—out into the burning sea of spectres? Debut novelist Nancy Taber deftly braids three timelines together, each as engaging and fully drawn as the other. With whip-smart contemporary dialogue and moving, evocative historical writing, she brings to life three different generations of Acadian women in a riveting, crackling, chilling mystery.

  • A Tale of Two Kitties

    A Tale of Two Kitties

    It was the best of meows, it was the worst of meows….

    Mittens and Boots have nothing in common. Nada. Zilch. Okay, maybe they live in the same house, but sharing is NOT in their vocabulary. They each have their own food bowls, bathing rituals, and bad habits. And they like it that way. Life is glorious until IT arrives, replacing their usual cozy armchairs. The loveseat. PAW-lease. This wasn’t love. It was revenge. Plain and simple. Payback from their humans for the litter box situation. It really wasn’t good. Soon, it’s two cantankerous cats against one loveseat, leather-bent on being the new bestie. Setting aside their differences won’t be easy for the furry adversaries, but cat naps are calling. A Tale of Two Kitties celebrates that while each of us is unique, we’re similar in all the ways that truly matter.

  • Into the Wind A Novel of Acadian Resilience

    Into the Wind

    A gusty August morning … two children spot sails on the horizon … foreign soldiers enter their village. Johnston holds the reader close with this moving tale. The main characters, Marie and Charles, are fictional, but the story is not. It is based on well-documented historical facts about the 1755 removal of Acadians from Grand-Pré. Into the Wind presents that well-known event in a fresh way. It makes for a poignant, suspenseful novel about how two kids and a village deal with forces and events far beyondtheir control.

From the Ken’s Corner parking lot, Jesse is scheming to win a seat in the provincial legislature.
