Synopsis

With writing reminiscent of Alice Munro, Carol Shields, Larry McMurtry, and Elizabeth Strout, Juliet in August uncovers the incredible drama beneath the inhabitants of a sleepy prairie town.

Summary

Review Excerpts

"Cassandra Campbell performs Diane Warren's lyrical prose with insight that allows the beauty and brutality of the landscape and the simplicity of living on the land to speak for themselves." ---AudioFile Earphones Award Winner

"This debut novel of interlinking stories follows one day in the life of Juliet's quirky residents. Campbell's measured pace matches the precise descriptions and complex characters." ---Booklist Audio Review

"I was reminded of Carol Shields and the creation of unassuming, matter-of-fact characters who are, in truth, generously complicated. The writing is understated, wry, laconic---as if the place itself could not produce any other kind of story." ---David Bergen

"This is powerful writing---gut-wrenching and inspiring. Its drama is quiet, but in the end you hardly know what hit you." ---Governor General's Award Jury

"Juliet in August is an intricately beautiful novel full of the unexpected triumph of ordinary life." ---Siobhan Fallon, author of You Know When the Men Are Gone

Summary

Juliet, Saskatchewan, is a blink-and-you-miss-it kind of town—a dusty oasis on the edge of the Little Snake sand hills. It's easy to believe that nothing of consequence takes place there. But the hills vibrate with life, and the town's heart beats in the rich and overlapping stories of its people: the rancher afraid to accept responsibility for the land his adoptive parents left him; the bank manager grappling with a sudden understanding of his own inadequacy; a shy couple, well beyond middle age, struggling with the recognition of their feelings for each other. And somewhere, lost in the sand, a camel named Antoinette.
