Emmeline never quite fit in on her family's rural Nova Scotian farm. And so, she fled across the Atlantic and built her life in England. Now she is retired and living in a small coastal town. When she joins a memoir-writing course at the library, her classmates don't know what to make of her. As her past unfolds, friendships form. She shares with them her biggest secret: she has liberated hundreds of spoons over her lifetime - she is a compulsive spoon stealer. This novel is full of humour, family secrets, women's friendship, and immense heart. Author of "Beholden." Residence: Homeville, N.S.
