A woman of a certain age

May 04th, 2023

Former CBC radio producer and host, Margie Taylor has published her fourth novel, Rose Addams (NeWest $24.95) about a woman in her early sixties whose life is turning upside down. Rose’s daughter has given up her PhD thesis and moved back home; Rose doesn’t see eye-to-eye with her son’s partner; her husband has been acting strangely and recently quit his university job; and there’s that young man who seems homeless and hangs around Rose’s library office. Taylor’s author bio notes that this novel was written with a definite audience in mind: “women of a certain age who have raised their children and feel that the hard work is behind them. They tend, more often than not, to be wrong.” Taylor is currently writing a sequel to Rose Addams, called Rose in Lockdown. 9781774390696
