Susan Lundy

June 28th, 2022

Born in the 1960s and “fed on feminism in the ‘70s and ‘80s,” Victoria-raised Susan Lundy intended to lead the life of a career woman. “Dress suits were in. I could motor out of the driveway in the morning, delve into engrossing and stimulating work (setting my own hours), bring home a fat cheque,” she writes in Home on the Strange: Chronicles of Motherhood, Mayhem, and Matters of the Heart (Heritage House $22.95). Then, in quick succession while on a summer co-op job in her fourth year at UVic, Lundy fell in love, married, became an instant step-mom and later, gave birth to two girls. Her career became a distant goal when she “looked into their eyes.” Family life became everything, which she wrote about in newspaper and magazine columns. Her book is a humourous story collection of the complete journey from kids to Covid and becoming an empty-nester. 9781772033649
