North Shore author Linden Carroll returns to Ladner this weekend with her latest historical novel.
Carroll will be at Black Bond Books in Trenant Park Square on Saturday, Oct. 26 from 1 to 3 p.m. where she will sign Full Circle, which was released on Aug. 30 by Austin Macauley.
Her first published work Olive, which she brought to Ladner for a book signing last October, will also be on display.
“I am very excited about this event and to have the opportunity to meet the residents of the area again and showcase Full Circle, which has solicited positive interest since its release,” said Carroll. “New Canadian authors need support and backup from the media and book stores in order to keep writing.”
Full Circleis a story of the indomitable spirit of a youth into manhood and his years spent growing up in war-ridden London, England.
At 12 years old and orphaned following the Second World War, he follows a clandestine lifestyle on the London streets while England rebuilds after the war. His rescue of another teen from the streets and their liaison cause him to experience the pain and intensity of first love and parenthood subsequently separating them.
Becoming a seafaring adventurer, he spends many years travelling across England and Canada, finally returning to his homeland to re-claim his lost love and daughter.
Originally from England, Carroll now resides on the North Shore and also spends times in northern Washington where she enjoys walking with her canine friend.
Despite a demanding work life, including a long tenure in the federal government as a writer and editor in chief of The Environmental Citizen, a national environmental newspaper, Carroll has devoted a large part of her life to the rescue and protection of dogs.
