Product Description

***Hollywood Book Festival Award Winner Best General Fiction (2016)***

In post-war Canada during the late 1940s, Elly McGuinty and her younger sister, Dot, are newly orphaned. The girls are sent to live with their grandparents in a small prairie town. Still grieving the loss of her parents, Elly chafes at the responsibility of helping care for Dot and struggles to find a place for herself in her new life. When a travelling circus comes to town, Elly’s desire for new experiences leads her, Dot, and new friend Stammer - a shy boy mocked for his halting voice - down a path where lives are altered forever.

About the Author

AUTHOR BIOGRAPHY L. M. (Lisa) Bryski, MD, is Canadian, convenient since her home is somewhere in Canada. She could reside most anywhere though, as she spends considerable time living in her own head. Lisa is a real doctor, but doesn't play one on TV. She gets to wear a lab coat at work, and she likes to fix emergencies, not cause them. Lisa has many proclivities, including a love of pancakes and all things breakfast. She enjoys reading and writing, and is very proud of her pronunciation of difficult words. Her humour is horrible, her punctuation abysmal, but she always finds a way to end her sentences with a period piece. The Book of Birds is Lisa's first novel. The narrative is a 1940s coming of age story inspired by many childhood visits to Saskatchewan, a love of ornithology and the Marx Brothers movie, 'At the Circus'. Somehow in Lisa's oddball mind, it all came together in the form of a book. Lisa's novel tells of Elly and her sister Dot, newly orphaned girls who move to a small prairie town to live with their grandparents. Elly's struggles to fit in lead both girls into danger. The consequences are unfortunate, and hopefully well worth the money to read about. You can find L. M. Bryski on Twitter as @LMBryski. She also has a website, www.lmbryski.com, and can be reached by email, lmbryski.writer@gmail.com. Enquiries about the author may also be made through Moran Press (MoranPress.com).
