Carol Brisebois -- Book Launch

Sunday Jan 14 2018 2:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium

Launch of This Beautiful Mess featuring a musical performance by Brendan McLean.

At six years, Catherine is nicknamed Cat for her sleek black hair and eyes that glow. As a young woman, she raises three unique children, and then sends then out into the world once they have grown.

On a whim, Cat buys a vintage shop guitar and picks up where she left off when she was ten years old. She learns to play a Joni Mitchell song about circles. Circles bring people back to you, like the daughter who refuses to speak to her.

When Cat meets Black Eyes, an old man who has been in and out of the music industry for years, she learns more than how to busk in the park. She learns about the beauty in chaos and the love in goodbye.

This Beautiful Mess is a story about the gifts in grieving and the both troubled and joyful path toward acceptance and gratitude.

Carol Brisebois has earned a degree in Psychology from the University of Manitoba, pursued studies in Early Childhood Education, and dedicated her life to working with children. Her previous novels include Her Sparrow, Trip, House on Fire, and Prayers to Serenity.
