Books in the Media: February 12, 2021

You’ll find this week’s media update for all my publishers here.

BC Rural Vet Stories

Night Watch is taking off, so be sure not to miss it. You’ll find more about this great book on the media update for the week. I think any account in BC or Alberta needs this book! It is like All Creatures Great and Small set in Northern BC.

“A dreamy, gentle triad of tales about rural veterinarian life in Northern B.C. A woman who never left her small town can’t let go of a childhood love. A sister works through jealousy by helping her brother calve. An overworked man’s marriage falters. One might assume the graphic viscera of farm medicine wouldn’t lend itself to beautiful writing, but one would be wrong—Wigmore’s lilting writing is as soothing as a lullaby.” — Casey Plett, Chatelaine 

“Wigmore’s prose brings to mind Alice Munro’s ability to capture the complex emotions that simmer underneath quiet, quotidian moments.” — Michelle Cyca, Vancouver Sun
