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.

Marina L. Reed has worked as a researcher and writer for CBC Television, written for journals and online education programs, and taught in public schools in Ontario, Europe, and the West Indies. She holds an M.A. in Journalism, an Honours B.A., and a B.Ed. She currently lives in Orangeville, ON.

"Reed wove together joys, sorrows, relationships, and struggles in a way that was informative and profound. I didn't wantto put it down... A book I will return to."
-Marion Boyd, Psychotherapist
