My first novel, After Helen, received great reviews when it was published by HarperCollins in Canada in 2006. This November it will finally be released to the rest of the world. Help me choose a fresh, new cover for this international edition. Let me know what you think of these two options by leaving a comment.
Irving is an unassuming history teacher grieving the recent death of his larger-than-life wife, Helen, whom he first met during a chance encounter at her father’s bookstore. Their teenage daughter, Severn – angry at Irving, angry at Helen – has disappeared after stealing a book that may reveal more about her mother than she ever wanted to know. On the road in search of Severn, Irving revisits his past with Helen as he follows a trail of clues that reveal why Severn has disappeared. Along the way, he comes face-to-face with some long-buried family secrets – secrets that he’ll have to confront if he wants to save his relationship with his daughter.
