A Clear Eye

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
In the early 1940s, on a northern Canadian homestead, Callie grows up fast. Her innocence, fostered by isolation and her mother’s determination to force Callie into the outdated pattern of Lillian’s own pre-war youth, is the catalyst of a family feud that tests all Callie’s growing strength as she struggles for the freedom to be herself.

About Lea Tassie

Lea Tassie grew up in the Peace River district of northern BC. Due to six months of winter and two months poor sledding, she started reading books as soon as she could hang on to one. She has traveled and worked in many places, which may explain why she can’t stick to one genre as an author. Her books include humor (about cats), romantic suspense, mainstream and lately, speculative fiction. When she discovered the temperate rainforest stretching along 1200 miles of the Pacific Coast, from Oregon to Alaska, she quit traveling and settled in for good.

Review by: Barbara Gordon on May 30, 2012 :
Beautiful writing with a crystal-clear observation of nature and the passing seasons, combined with a gritty, unflinching view of life on an isolated farm and how both shape a sensitive child. I was reminded of a tougher-minded L M Montgomery.
The characteres are true to life and well-realised, with allowance made for Callie's perspective on them, both clear and harsh.
