Was it the death of her dog, Bloom, or was she just tired of her routine as a dentist? Or perhaps her depression was the result of her (mostly) unrequited love for her former piano teacher, Bruno? As Robin contemplates a sabbatical to see puffins in Newfoundland, a fateful google search puts everything on hold. When she accidentally finds Bruno's grown son -- or a younger double -- living in France with a woman Bruno knew briefly many many years ago, Robin has a choice: stay in Canada and monitor her distant father's suspected dementia, or accept Bruno's demand that she go with him to France, and help him face fatherhood a few decades too late.
S. Portico Bowman's home was in a collage of places. She worked in Kansas as an art professor, art writer, and gallery director. Her father, family, writing community, and many friends are in Canada. She has completed her work in Kansas and now lives in San Diego full time with Tom and their cat Florence. Portico’s favourite art supply is glitter. She was recently awarded a Canada Council for the Arts Research and Creation grant for her second book, a story inspired by the visionary life and writings of Paulus Berensohn.
