Swamp AngelLarge Print - 1996
Swamp Angel is the story of Maggie Lloyd, struggling to find certainty in a world that has deprived her of family and trapped her in a second marriage that has proven a terrible mistake. One spring evening she abandons her petty husband and her old life, escaping to work at a B.C. fishing lodge. But the serenity she finds in the harsh and breath-taking wilderness is short-lived, as new conflicts emerge with a jealous lodge-owner's wife.
Ethel Wilson's novel is hard to forget - her unique and delightful style appears artless, yet betrays hidden depths.
