Sharon J. Hamilton -- Book LaunchThursday Oct 03 2019 7:00 pm, Winnipeg, Grant Park in the Atrium
Launch of Manitoba MAID.
Winnipeg author Sharon Hamilton is launching her fourth novel, the first to be set entirely in Winnipeg and surrounding areas. Manitoba MAID features Aurelia Vasylena Campbell, a 75-year old woman dying of cancer, facing eviction, and suspected of murdering her neighbour. Detective Lydia Travis’ investigation of the murder uncovers another suspicious death in Aurelia’s past. Desperate, Aurelia locates a sibling she has never met and makes three requests: help her arrange for Medical Assistance in Dying (MAID); bring together the other unknown siblings before her death; and write her life story. Manitoba MAID is that story.
Hamilton began writing fiction at age 70. Her three other novels, also murder mysteries, are set in Devon, UK, where she retired for several years before returning to Winnipeg.
