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 First Novel Prize. Her second novel, Heyday, is a two-era love story set on Toronto Island.


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.
