    1. When we are children, we know the words.When we are older we are persuaded to let others choose words for usbut something inside us sayst club med. Mud Puddle. p26AH has given us a delightful romp here. Her sensitivity to the natural world and her empathy for humanity in general, along with her self-assured, lyrical writing made this book a pleasure to read. Dorie is a bit of an awkward heroine, but once she starts detaching from the proscribed and conventional and begins trusting her intuition, [...]


    2. "Maybe I don't want a new pair of sandalsybe I want an adventure." This is one of the inner voices of our protagonist, Dorie, as she argues with the rational side of herself against changing her habits or looking too hard at how she fulfills her life. "What do you do?""I work in an office.""NoI mean what do you do."I loved this novel for so many reasons. First, I could very much identify with the (inner) outspoken Dorie, a professional woman living in downtown Toronto, working in an office with [...]


    3. Strange story of a young woman named Dorie who works in an office in Toronto and has such a routine kind of life that she has been hiding in her closet, listening to voices in her head (her brain and “The Undertow”) that keep her trapped in her ho-hum life, with an odd cat who prefers other people to her and an ex-boyfriend who desperately wants her back. She “snaps” just before her annual beach vacation with her co-workers and sets out on a crazy adventure to Cape Breton to find a cove [...]


    4. A fable? An allegory? Or just a really weird story? Dorie, prisoner to her fears and self-loathing (and, increasingly, to the closets into which she retreats when not at work), makes the startling decision not to go to Aruba with her fellow secretaries as planned, but instead leaps alone into the unknown wilds of Cape Breton a week before tourist season begins. She discovers people only marginally less odd, but very much happier, than herself, and in pursuing the first true adventure in her life [...]


    5. An insightful, rolicking tale set primarily on Cape Breton Island. Full of life, growth, humour and adventure. A lovely gift from the author, Ann Hines. Cannot wait for her next book.
