Jo Dette posted this to Facebook & we wanted to share it here. Thanks Jo! I just wanted to tell you that I finished your book today and enjoyed it very much. The sentence “Just let me finish this chapter.” was said often when tasks demanded my time. The more I read it, the more I thought the character Gaz was Boomer, and it was confirmed when I read the last page. Thank you for bringing back the memories of him. Like how he used to relish in the scaring of me when I would unlock the Marine Station kitchen door in the mornings. Or how he told me, in his polite way, that when he wanted his coffee refilled, he would let me know and not to approach him with the “topping up” when I was doing my waitress duties at the Tides and Trails. Will recommend your book to my reader friends and was wondering….. will there be a sequel?

Letter from Laura

It is so amazing to hear the memories people have of Bamfield.  Thanks Laura for this lovely note!

I just wanted to drop a quick line to let you know that, through a distant connection of the Bamfield grapevine, I picked up a copy of Cedar, Salmon and Weed on my last visit to Canada a couple of weeks ago.  I couldn’t put it down, I absolutely loved it!  I read it in a couple of days and loaned it to my Dad who remembers Bamfield from the 70’s when he and my mum were together.  In fact, one of Dad’s stories is how grandpa Peter used to flog him with the birch after the sauna – he was never sure if grandpa gave it a little extra juice just for him…  I haven’t been to Bamfield since Grandma’s funeral but reading this reconnected me to my childhood there and all the wonder of west coast beaches (I laughed at the “wet coast”).  Thanks for a great read anyways,
