Opening Notes

We have added a new title to the Fiction section of the Bookshop. Santiago’s Purple Skies at Morning’s Light by Bernadette Gabay Dyer is a ghostly coming-of-age tale. The story is seen through the eyes of Iris-Canadian teen Kathleen Dunkley, who is confronted by apparitions that haunt her all the way from Ontario to Jamaica.
