It’s based on a true story about a British nurse who moved to northern Labrador in the 1970s to be a midwife and who now struggles to keep her memories alive as she lives with Lewy body dementia. You can purchase the book directly from the shop button on Stacey’s Facebook page, and she will also be signing books at the vendor fair at the Vancouver conference, from June 11 to 12.
