PEI author Michelle Harris-Genge released her latest book, Fragments of Faith: A Gen X Journey in April.
Warning: This novel will trigger your Gen X angst.
It’s 1992 and Faith MacDonald’s final year of university in the small province of Prince Edward Island. Faith is on the cusp of adulthood and getting more and more stressed about her future with each passing day. Part of growing up means Faith needs to deal with things she’d rather forget, but she’s not confident she’s ready. Especially as she’s not thin enough yet—and being skinny will solve everything. Besides the internal pressure of figuring out next steps, Faith tries to navigate complicated relationships with her family, her roommate, a gorgeous student she’s stalking, and every latch-key kid’s eternal babysitter: the beloved television. Faith just wants love in her life. Or at least peace. And if she can’t find either; there’s always angry music to soothe her soul. And potato chips. But maybe the mysterious Mr. Darkness has something even better to offer…
Michelle lives in a renovated log cabin on PEI with her husband and their two kids. Michelle keeps busy with her day job working in the realm of gender equity and diversity policy. She co-writes The Terra Obscura Chronicles with Geoff Genge (husband). Fragments of Faith is her second solo effort.
