LUCY CLOUD 2018
A NOVEL by Anne Lévesque
AN EAR FOR THE QUIRKS and rhythms of Cape Breton speech powers this sometimes comic, sometimes poignant story of rural people as they slide into modernity, armed with the best ethics that inherited genes and rules can provide.
While focusing on a jack-of-all-trades farmer, his wife’s passionate adoption of a son, and the granddaughter who comes to challenge them, Lévesque vividly portrays the power of local customs in shaping the lives of newcomers, as age brings patience, tragedy, and love. This creative work of fiction has the ring of truth!
