A GAP IN THE FENCE is a heart-rending tale of love, loss and atonement.
Set in the early 1960’s, the story begins when 19-year-old Theo stumbles across a family secret. Determined to find out more, he searches for the woman who is at the heart of it – Clara.
His quest takes him from Vancouver to a small farming community in Alberta where an unfortunate incident with Clara’s husband prevents him from sharing his reasons for coming there. Unwilling to return home without achieving what he had set out to do, Theo accepts work as a farm hand. By the time he is ready to confide in Clara, his relationship with a young woman gets in the way.
It takes a death and a promise to rekindle any hope for forgiveness and to create a future that involves much more than any of them had expected.
What if you were someone else’s deep dark secret? And what if you decided to knock on their door? “A Gap in the Fence” follows city-boy Theo as he does just that, stepping into life on the prairie farm run by his long lost relative and her husband. The delightful characters peopling this tale kept me turning the pages, cheering them on and hoping they would work through the setbacks thrown their way by circumstances and their own frailties.
