About the Book

Everyone knows everyone’s business in the small fishing community of Kitsum. So when young Brenda Joe gets pregnant and quits high school, the news spreads quickly. Things look up when Brenda’s favourite aunt, Monica, returns to Kitsum for Christmas. Monica, however, has been living with a white man in Vancouver and is struggling with her own relationship problems. It has become distressingly clear to her that she is little more than exotic arm candy for him. She has had enough of being his fantasy version of an “Indian Princess.” When Brenda reveals her secret relationship with the baby’s father, a local man from a hard-partying family, Monica is appalled and goes to set him straight. Her actions trigger a chain of events that neither of the women would have ever expected.
As winter passes, other shocking family scandals begin to surface.
Come spring, amid the secrets and betrayals, each family member will be lured down to the village dock for the annual harvest of herring eggs. No one in the community is able to resist the deliciousness of fresh kwukmis. How will they be able to face one another?
