Sassy tomboy Ginger Atkinson would rather be captaining a deep-sea fishing boat than baking pies, yet she still wishes she had a man to bake for. Sure, the pretty redhead is happy running her late father's Turtle Island ferry business, but everyone in the world is finding love except her. Stuck on the wrong side of thirty, she's trying to accept singlehood by building a dream home--for one. In high school, Carter Ridley loved to sneak off with his good friend Ginger to watch the sun rise over the ocean. But after graduation, his path took a different route. One that, unlike Ginger's, did get him the spouse and house of his dreams. At least, until a scandal shattered everything. Running from his heartbreak, Carter returns to Turtle Island, where he discovers that Ginger is all grown up. His teenage friend has become the woman he's always wanted. But will Carter's pain scare him away from a chance at happiness? Or can he be the loving partner Ginger's been looking for?

Sixteen-year-old Max and 10-year-old Tessa were fully prepared for another horrible summer vacation. While they always hoped to go somewhere fun like Disney World or Universal Studios, they usually went somewhere weird and cheap that their father, former boy bander Don Masters, found in an ad in a truck stop coupon magazine. But this year was different. Where they went couldn't be found on any map or in any truck stop coupon book. They passed through a portal to a place called Turtle Island, an alternate version of America that diverged from our history before the pilgrims landed at Plymouth Rock. It was there where they met world famous action movie star Jordie Paine -- star of such films as I Plan to Kill You Now and the sequel, I Plan to Kill You Now, Too, the ninja film, Chuck Butcher: Sword Wielding Jackal, as well as the light-hearted romp, Harry Hinklehoffer and the Giant Dancing Toad of East Nebraska -- who would be their guide in this strange new world. Jordie, they later learned, brought the Masters family to Turtle Island for a very specific reason. Because they look just like the ruthless first family of Turtle Island, the Masters are pawns in a coup to overthrow the dictator. But things don't go as planned and the Masters wind up in the Survival Games, Turtle Island's national pastime/system of justice where criminals competitors, or crimpetitors, compete for their freedom. In this scifi comedy, the stakes are very simple -- if they win, they rule, if they lose, they must suffer the consequences.

A powerful first novel about a family that slips from fortune's favor and a town broken by the forces of modernity Across a bend of Ontario's Attawan River lies the Island, a working-class neighborhood of whitewashed houses and vine-freighted fences, black willows and decaying sheds. Here, for generations, the Walkers have lived among the other mill workers. The family's troubles begin in the summer of 1965, when a union organizer comes to town and Alf Walker is forced to choose between loyalty to his friends at the mill and advancement up the company ranks. Alf's worries are aggravated by his wife, Margaret, who has never reconciled her middle-class English upbringing to her blue-collar reality. As the summer passes, Joe, their son, is also forced to reckon with his family's standing when he falls headlong for a beautiful newcomer on a bridge—a girl far beyond him, with greater experience and broader horizons. As the threat of mill closures looms, the Walkers grapple with their personal crises, just as the rest of the town fights to protect its way of life amid the risks of unionization and the harsh demands of corporate power. Superbly crafted and deeply moving, this remarkable debut follows the Walkers to the very bottom of their night only to confirm, in the end, life's ultimate hopefulness. The Island Walkers is at once a love letter to a place, a gripping family saga, and a testimony to the emergence of an important new novelist.
