The Roads of Go Home Lake is the long-awaited sequel to Christina Kilbourne's award winning novel Where Lives Take Root. When Winnie finds herself suddenly widowed and an unemployed mother of six, she is forced to change her life in order to keep her family together. Illiterate, shy and inexperienced in the ways of the white man's world, Winnie relies on her eldest son and the strength of her Chippewan ancestors to give her the courage to find help.The Roads of Go Home Lake follows Winnie's journey as she faces her darkest secrets and recalls the bittersweet memories of growing up in an abandoned logging town in the 1950's. Here she finds the strength to forgive her parents their weaknesses and cruelties, gives herself permission to remember their tenderness and pride, and is compelled to search for the family she long ago fled. The Roads of Go Home Lake is a novel of heritage and blood, it is a novel of courage and healing, it is a novel of inner growth and universal hope.
