Once I started Through Different Eyes I could not put the book down! As I realized I was half way though the book already, I tried to pace myself so I could be engaged in unexpected twists and turns of the story longer. I throughly enjoyed the detail in landscape, weather and seasons. I hope there will be a sequel.

I really enjoyed this novel’s fresh take on family and community relations in a fictional First Nations community on Vancouver Island. While it doesn’t shy away from social or political issues, the emphasis is on the feelings and motivations of individual characters and the warmth and resilience to be found in community. Now I want a sequel!

Through Different Eyes has resparked my love for reading. It brings you through so many emotions and you feels so connected to the characters. This is the book I am recommending to all my friends and family, it definitely deserves more attention.
