May marks the unveiling of a compelling new literary voyage that promises to captivate readers and transport them to the enchanting world of the East Shore of Kootenay Lake.

“Light in the Harbour: Passage Through Pilot Bay” is the first offering from author Paula Snow, whose mastery of storytelling navigates the intricate currents of human emotion against the backdrop of Kootenay Lake.

Two rich and complex characters are going about their lives, a little more than a century apart.

What do they have in common?

Both are trying to get their bearings, both are seeking love, peace and a secure life, and both are living in the same area on the magnificent and beautiful Kootenay Lake in vastly different times.

Nineteen-year-old Patrick Wallace comes to the booming Canadian frontier settlement of Pilot Bay from Bonners Ferry, Idaho in 1895 to make his fortune.

A woman he meets throws him into a web of mystery, and in his search for answers he is rewarded with much more than he bargained for.

Sally Jenkins is a woman on a self-destructive path. She comes to Pilot Bay in 2019 to recover from her addictions, and find her life’s true purpose.

When Sally finds Patrick’s journal tucked away in a dusty corner of her new home, she is drawn into Patrick’s world. His story is not only a means of escape from her troubles, but also a lasting connection to the past, and a beacon to help her to find her own way forward.

“Light in the Harbour: Passage Through Pilot Bay” is a testament to the enduring power of storytelling and the universal longing for connection and belonging.

With its unforgettable characters and immersive setting, this novel is destined to leave a lasting impression on readers of all ages.
