About this title


Fabric of a Family is set in early 1950's England. While it is a work of fiction, many of you may recognize characters and situations familiar in your own milieu. This is the story of the lives, loves, and marriages of the Woodhouse family, their five children and two eccentric aunts. There is joy and sadness, optimism and disappointment, merriment and solemnity as each makes individual choices and decisions, often detrimental to themselves and to the fabric of their family. The Woodhouses are decent people striving to lead good lives but often falling far short of their ideals. Nevertheless, you will find understanding, perception, and compassion as the lives of this family unfold.

About the Author:

In 1961 she married a Canadian whom she had first met at the age of seventeen in England. In 1985 the couple decided to retire to the country. They purchased 100 acres of woodland in eastern Ontario and built a home where they still reside. In 1999 she graduated from Queen’s University, Kingston, with a B.A. granted with Distinction in English. During her years of study, she won a number of awards: twice awarded the McNeil Prize; three times awarded the J. Carl King Scholarship, and her final award was The Curtis Memorial Foundation Prize.
