laugh out loud funny. Published by Thriftbooks. com User, 19 years ago. I am from BC and I moved to the east coast of the US.

Throughout her childhood, Marion Farrant heard exotic stories of the sophisticated life her mother, Nancy, led aboard cruise ships and in Australia. Nancy’s world of furs, jewels, cigarette holders, and handsome men seemed miles away from the west-coast hamlet of Cordova Bay, where Marion lived with her aunt and uncle, running wild on the beach with her friends and enjoying weekend visits with her devoted father.

Created April 1, 2008. The frustrations of daily life take center stage in Canadian writer M. A. C. Farrant's sixth published effort, a collection of a dozen interlocking tales set on Vancouver Island. Narrated by: Justine Eyre. Flashes of dry wit and sharp insight brighten the tales of long-suffering in-laws, rusted cars, teenage parties, unreliable repairmen, and a temperamental husband. Veteran narrator Justine Eyre has a unique voice, both gravelly and tremulous, which is well-suited to the mood of the stories.
