So Long is a perfect book for female boomers entering the middle stages of our lives. We’ve made choices that have turned us towards certain roads. But do we ever really learn from our mistakes?

Synopsis

It is Katie MacLeods fifty-fifth birthday. While her daughters throw her a celebratory brunch, Katie takes stock of her life and her loves. Will she take a chance on her internet penpal, Francois, and embrace this virtual romance? In gentle prose, Louise Desjardins continues her observations of human relationships. In the small town of Arntfield, where the narrator spent her childhood, we join her as she recalls the mythical Look-Out Country Club, the site of past sins where her father played the violin, and the MacLeod Music Store.
