Spotlight Review:

Gillian Wigmore

Glory

In her debut novel, Glory, Gillian Wigmore shares with us the story of three powerful women in their struggle to escape their pasts and build a future in “back of beyond” northern British Columbia. Fort St. James is a remote town, in this novel a world unto itself that traps inhabitants, surrounding them with unforgiving wilderness and mountains. This is also a story about a vast lake, and how it figuratively and literally swallows those living around it. The lake looms large in these characters’ lives, shifting the weather and providing solace, beauty, and, too often, death.
