November 2016 – Rule of Seconds by Shawna Diane Partridge

November 2, 2016

And we’re back! After a long hiatus, we’re returning to our roots – books! Read with us this month and in the months to come, as we focus on books and authors we’ve featured on Hardcover.


Shawna Diane Partridge’s novella, Rule of Seconds, is a fictionalized family history set in Sault Ste. Marie, a northern Canadian town. This ambitious first book explores the lives of “hard” women, women who ran boarding houses and bars, who went against expectations and were not always looked kindly for their independence. Firmly set in the Sault, with roots reaching back to overseas ancestors, the novella has serious and funny moments, and a very strong, hard, core that stays true throughout the retrospective narrative.
