Finalist, Award for Publishing/Book of the Year/First Book Award; Saskatchewan Book Awards. Miranda, a thirty-something TV producer gets abandoned by her fiance on a mountaintop in Jasper. Rather than crawling back to Edmonton to pick up the pieces one more time, she drives to Vancouver with a mysterious young spiritual guide she meets, and comes back to the mountaintop with a new view of her life. Interwoven with this personal journey is an encounter with a disoriented young Rwandan refugee with a horrific story of his experience. As well, her travelling companion proposes a convergence of meanings between his native East Indian roots and his adopted Catholic faith. Jennifer Webber is a bright witty new voice. Her talent, demonstrated in Defying Gravity, should bring pleasure to her readers for a long time to come.-Sharon Butala
