GDPL Book Club with Special Guest, Author Rebecca Hendry

one good thing

 

Author Rebecca Hendry joins the GDPL Book Club for a discussion of her new novel, One Good Thing.

 

In the spring of 1977, Annie, a flighty artist, and her twelve-year-old daughter, Delilah, trade the cherry blossom trees and beaches of Vancouver for rugged and remote Old Town in Yellowknife, surprising Delilah’s father by showing up on his doorstep. As she adapts to her new surroundings, Delilah befriends Will, a local Dene man and her father’s business partner. But Annie’s capricious nature undermines Delilah’s elusive sense of belonging when Annie leaves Old Town for an artists’ colony without saying goodbye. While coping with her family’s instability and changes within herself, Delilah becomes attached to Will as she grows alienated from her increasingly aloof father. When Will vanishes in a blizzard one night, Delilah is devastated and suspects her father is to blame. What happened to Will? Is there anyone she can trust? Where―and with whom―does she belong?

Born in Ottawa to a hippie mother and a poet father, Rebecca Hendry moved to a new city or town across Canada every year until she was eleven, when she settled on the Sunshine Coast in BC. Her first novel, Grace River, was published by Brindle and Glass in 2009, and her short fiction has appeared in the Dalhousie Review, Wascana Review, Event, Windsor Review, and other literary journals. She lives in Gibsons, BC.
