Lea Tassie was raised in northern British Columbia where her passion for books began as soon as she could read. She has worked at a variety of jobs, traveled in Europe and North America, and earned a B.A. in Classical Studies. Lea has published eight novels and a collection of short pieces. She relaxes by playing bridge and walking the seashore on Vancouver Island. She is currently working on the third book in the Green Blood series, the fourth book in the Adriana Island series and a collection of short stories. In the unlikely event that she has time for anything else, she is thinking about writing another contemporary novel.

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.
