Like those washed-off scrolls ready to be reused by a scribe, the words that came before leaving spectral impressions on the page, cities are built, unbuilt and rebuilt, leaving behind evidence of lives lived and left. In this way, time is made circular, existing on top of itself. It is no wonder, then, that in such spaces we should encounter the ghosts of those who came before us and those who might come after.It's these myriad ghosts inhabiting a city's abandoned places that inspired the writing of Lisa de Nikolits fifth novel, Between the Cracks She Fell. The book "is like an homage to every ghost who talks to me and speaks to me of their lives that have gone wrong," said de Nikolits at the Women Write the City panel discussion about city as muse and backdrop for female protagonists, held at Another Story Bookshop in Toronto on January 28.De Nikolits met the ghosts who would become the characters in her novel while she and her husband were exploring an old P.O.W. camp in Bowmanville.Joscelyn, the feisty 28-year-old British expat determined to make her life in Canada despite recent bad luck, appeared to de Nikolits as a ghost from the future, hands on hips, daring de Nikolits to write about her and what living in those lonely buildings at night would be like.Read more here: http://rabble.ca/books/reviews/2016/0....

A viral Book Between The Cracks She Fell This book was a wonderful find. The heroine is plucky and resourceful - I liked her enormously. The theme reminded me of that saying, "Two meals away from anarchy." It was a fierce reminder of how close we all are to homelessness at some point in our lives, through no fault of our own. Lose a job...lose a partner, and that ability to pay a mortgage drops away, when fate conspires to throw bad things at you all at once. I particularly like that the book ended on a positive, hopeful note, and think this would be a good book for high school students to read
