      Description

      Finalist for the 2019 Indigenous Voices Award in Published Poetry in English. To unearth our secrets means we must face our past, and in doing so, we will find our voice. Unearthing of Secrets: Gathering of Truths explores the heartfelt and evocative fragmented experiences through the eyes of an Indigenous woman. Through the honesty of her words, she embraces the spirit world, the resilience of her foremothers, the integral healing powers of disassociation as a survival mechanism, and the richness of her mitewin - dreams, which reconnects her to herself. Through her poetry, she has found the courage to face her difficult past, and now as a mother, she is gathering the truths of her family to help in the healing process.

      Jules Koostachin's Unearthing Secrets, Gathering Truths is full of rich poem-stories that feel both ancient and modern at the same time. Urgent, raw and fast-paced, this is a book you'll want to drink up in one sitting.
      --Alicia Elliott, 2018 RBC Taylor Prize Emerging Writer

      "I met Jules Koostachin when she was a very young mother. I suspected that she was on a journey from earth to some kind of star nation home, and that she was aware that she would have to plough through the earth stories of her life to get there. Imbued in these stories were terrible secrets, filled with awesome and monstrous stories which only the language of the stars could do justice to. This poetry is about that journey. I am inspired by the insistent and patient love that it took to craft this work. I love her love of her mother and because of the largesse of Jules's very soul I can love all her mother's frailties, her silences and her absences. Jules's love of her mother indicates that she does not differentiate between her earth mother or her human one. As children, we are here to love our mothers - both of them, earth and human. I love the very Moshkekowok sensibility embedded in these words: star tracks from earth to home, from secrets to the gathering of family and the Cree Nation."
      --Lee Maracle, author of My Conversations With Canadians

      "These poems take back what was stolen by the colonizer: the people's life and voice, freedom and truth. here is the work of a shapeshifter, transforming the world word by word, teaching us the power of love. not hiding from the brutality of violence against Indigenous women and children, this poet finds strength and resilience in reclaiming language, home and roots. such courage is a gift to our spirits, our ancestors and the ones yet to come."
      --Rita Wong, author of Undercurren

      Description

      Nora Edwards finally has everything she wants out of life, including the boy of her dreams, until one night that dream turns into a nightmare. On their way home from prom, Nora and Andrew are attacked by a supernatural creature called the Revenant that sucks the souls out of the living in order to feed itself. Nora manages to escape from the creature, but Andrew is not as fortunate.

      Although Nora suffers loss that night, she gains something as well: the ability to see the dead, including her recently deceased boyfriend. Whether the skill is a gift or a curse is yet to be determined, since those around her assume Nora's erratic behaviour is due to "paramnesia," a disorder in which a person confuses dreams with reality. She's also attracted the attention of the Revenant's masters, who need to preserve the secret of their supernatural existence and will stop at nothing to prevent her from talking. Nora, along with Andrew and her living and dead allies in the Deadish Society, quickly finds herself in a battle for her life--and the souls of her city.

      In the year 1907, all of Brampton is present at the sod-turning ceremony for the Carnegie Library. At the end of the event, the crowd rises as one to walk to the Presbyterian Church for a consecration service... Everyone except Jessie Stephens and her family. Her father will not allow them to enter the Presbyterian Church.

      No one will tell young Jessie the reason, but she learns that it has something to do with her grandfather Jesse Brady, who built it. As she seeks to solve that mystery over many years, Jessie slowly begins to learn the history of the town in which she lives. Her tales of everyday life in small town Ontario combine to craft a vivid portrait of a life and a family that are, upon closer inspection, anything but ordinary.

      Description

      Welcome to Primrose Street, where neighbours share close interactions but know very little of each other. Only the maple trees that have lined the road for decades know their decisions, indiscretions, secrets, joys, and pains.

      From fifty-year residents Charlie and Cora and their grandson Ronald, to newcomer Sofia and her son Nicolas, to best friends Tabitha and Dayna, the residents of Primrose Street go about their daily lives--shopping, attending school, meeting at cafés, smiling as they pass on the sidewalk--all the while remaining invisible to one another.

      Only when an invitation arrives in their mailboxes must the residents of Primrose Street decide whether to allow authenticity into their lives and neighbourhood or remain limited in their relationships and thereby to themselves.

      Drawing comparisons to Maeve Binchy and Elizabeth Strout for its clear-eyed characterizations of everyday people, Marina L. Reed's writing sheds light on questions that haunt us and exposes the poison of secrets. Primrose Street is everyone's street, where the ebb and flow of daily experiences can bring people together and miracles are still possible.
