Fresh, tough, and thoroughly addictive, this sparkling debut collection calls to mind the beloved and bestselling works of Lisa Moore, Camilla Gibb, and Mark Haddon.
With an irresistible combination of playfulness and empathy, these effervescent, sometimes heartbreaking tales of underachieving adults, unfairly burdened children, and the unaccountably hopeful of all ages explore the moments of grace in lives that are too often defined by loss.
A punky young woman comes to terms with the accident that took away all of her family except the grandmother who believes she is a bird, and an aging prospector — a woman — discovers that a physical “curse” might have been something of a bing all along. “The Indian Act” is a compact coming-of-age story, charting the journey of a boy who, though bounced through many foster homes, holds on to the dream of love and unconditional acceptance; and in the novella “River Rising,” three generations in a small town struggle toward joy despite the accidents of fate and the foolish mistakes that almost, but not quite, derail their lives. Fierce introduces Hannah Holborn as a shining new light in Canadian fiction.

Kindle Edition "Where Eagles Never Flew" Robert "Robin" Priestman, RAF aerobatics pilot and "Debs' Delight," has a fatal personality flaw: when under sufficient stress, he loses all sense of his own limitations. He has incurred the displeasure of the Air Ministry by a dangerous breach of the King's Regulations. Despite his credible service with a fighter squadron in France, the Battle of Britain finds him in Training Command-and falling in love with a girl from the Salvation Army. No. 606 (Hurricane) Squadron has not recovered from the losses over Dunkirk when it is thrown into the Battle of Britain. As the losses mount, morale plunges. New pilots joining the squadron find a cold reception from the clique of Auxiliaries, who resent them taking the place of their dead friends. Klaudia von Richthofen, a nave recruit to the Luftwaffe Women's Auxiliary, allows herself to be seduced by a dashing Stuka-Group commander-and then falls under the spell of the irreverent and carefree Baron von Feldburg.
But it is his wingman, Leutnant Ernst Geuke, who has fallen desperately in love with her. Ernst, however, is short and plump and the son of a plumber from Cottbus, so how can he hope to win Klaudia's affection?
