The Tourist’s Story…As She Saw It (Hardcover – Special Edition, in Slip Case)
Transplanted from her native country to Canada when she was only ten, Shie returns to find her hometown transformed almost beyond recognition after many decades. She blends in as any other tourist in special guest housing provided by extended families in the town. However, her awakened and revived memories will not keep calm. Both her hosts and fellow tourists begin to think there is something about Shie they find difficult to put a finger on — with all the quirky little details she provides on the towns history even though she doesn’t speak like the locals.
Is Shie going to let them in on her secret?
