  • Short Description
What do we do when "the monster in our midst" moves next door? It’s a question the members of the Last Chance Ladies' Book Club must ask themselves after a man with an abusive past moves into their seniors’ complex.
Eleanor Sawchuck believes she deserves to spend her last years in peace, perhaps even in the happiness of pursuing a December romance. But then Donald Eston, a man whose abusive past only she and her book club know about, moves into her seniors' complex. Not only are Eleanor and her friends uncertain what to do about him, they can't be sure they know the truth. After one of her friends dies and her lover becomes ill, Eleanor decides it's time to learn some facts from Eston's son, and to finally confront Eston himself.

Marlis Wesseler's first collection of short stories, Life Skills (Coteau Books, 1992), was a finalist for both the Saskatchewan Book of the Year Award and the 1993 Regina City Book Award. Imitating Art was published by Coteau in 1994 and Elvis Unplugged was published by Oberon in 1998. Wesseler's stories have appeared in Grain and NeWest Review, as well as anthologies such as The Old Dance (Coteau Books, 1986), Out of Place (Coteau Books, 1991) and Lodestone (Fifth House Publishers, 1992). She makes her home in Regina.
