Overview


Fiction. This novel tells the story of a woman unraveling from the traumatic past and her yearning for redemption. When her sister dies prematurely, Clemance-Marie Nadeau leaves her family and village behind, boarding a train bound for Sault Ste. Marie, where she falls under the spell of a charming stranger who promises her a life of adventure, and then holds her captive with her guilt and his threats of violence. Years later, when Clemance moves to the United States, she feels like an outsider, but Clemance is also in exile from herself. Discovering she is pregnant at the age of forty-two sets in motion a series of events that awakens a painful memory and thus begins the long and sometimes harrowing journey back to her homeland, and to herself. "JACKFISH, THE VANISHING VILLAGE is a fascinating read...a powerful and moving narration of a woman's search for redemption"-Tygre A. Winters.
