Local author and friend Angie Abdou launched her new book In Case I Go as part of the Booked! Fernie Writers’ Series on September 14, 2017 at the Fernie Heritage Library. Her book is available at Polar Peek Books.
In Case I Go is Angie Abdou’s fifth work of fiction.
Eli and his parents have returned to their ancestral family home in a small mountain town; the parents hope that by escaping their hectic city lives, they will restore calm and stability to their marriage. But Young Eli unexpectedly finds himself answering for the mistakes of the house’s first owner, his great-great grandfather and namesake Elijah Mountain. He meets Mary, an enigmatic Ktunaxa girl who lives next door, and together they discover that they both have a foot in multiple worlds; in doing so, they relive and account for their past lives of seduction and betrayal.
A new kind of ghost story, In Case I Go is about the many ways we’re haunted by the misdeeds of our ancestors.
