A New Thriller by Carol Matas

Short and snappy.
A fast-paced thriller
with a paranormal twist. 
After the shocking murder of her husband, Ros and her baby relocate to her childhood home to live with her parents. Palm Springs, California—full of sunlight, small and safe—should be the perfect place to bring up a child. But things are not always as they appear.

Soon, an unexpected tragedy sets a dangerous series of events into motion. Someone, it seems, is out to get Ros. As she struggles to uncover the identity of her mysterious enemy, Ros finds herself looking for answers in the most unusual places. Could the attacks have something to do with her increasingly disturbing dreams? And how many people close to her need to get hurt before she figures it out?

Inspiring Book Launch for Gloria Levi

It was standing room only at the Gabriola Library on August 13, 2019 for the book launch of Gloria Levi's memoir, Kissing an Old Dream Goodbye. 

This poignant memoir deals with the struggles of a young couple as they try to integrate into the newly created State of Israel in the 1950s. It is multilayered account that pits her Zionist idealism against the realities and complex challenges that she and her husband encounter in this very particular time in the history of the Jewish State. It’s a fascinating, intimate story, beautifully told.
