“Author Wendy Truscott has created a fascinating snapshot of Old Muskoka, at times both touching and heartbreaking . . . offering a colourful glimpse into a world that has long since passed away.” – Cheryl Cooper, author of the “Seasons of War” trilogy.
Wendy B. Truscott of Toronto learned to cherish Muskoka’s beauty and heritage from early years in the District at her family’s summer cottage, which she describes as “remote, small, and on a quiet lake.” She and her husband Paul, decades later, now live on this “same peaceful property” following her retirement as an Ontario school teacher. She has been active in a number of Muskoka literary circles. This is her second novel, following Haunted Journey.
