In Marnie Woodrow’s second novel, two lively girls meet aboard a Toronto Island roller coaster in 1909 and a modern-day woman who grieves the loss of her partner. Heyday is a double-barreled story about nostalgia, the soul’s quest for pleasure and the power of love to endure through lifetimes.
Marnie Woodrow is the acclaimed author of two short fiction collections, Why We Close Our Eyes When We Kiss, and In The Spice House. Her novel, Spelling Mississippi, was short-listed for the amazon.ca First Novel Prize. Her second novel, Heyday, is a two-era love story set on Toronto Island.
