Poet Janet Parker Vaughan has written Seven Shifts, a darkly-luminous novella about a young girl coming to a sense of herself and her world in mid-20th-century rural Nova Scotia.
Seven Shifts creates a sensation that reveals not so much a losing of innocence (though there is that, too) as a finding of wisdom.
There are gifts and dangers in revelation; the child’s response to this paradox in Seven Shifts is the essence of becoming a human being.
--Sandra Barry, author of Elizabeth Bishop: Nova Scotia’s “Home-Made” Poet
Seven Shifts is an unforgettable gift of a novella. Through it, we relive the wonder of very young childhood, every sense electric, as we puzzle our way through the miracle of being newly alive...Parker Vaughan is a brilliantly gifted writer. She does not slip for a moment in her vivid portrayal of life through the eyes, heart and mind of an utterly fascinating child.
- Janet Barkhouse, author of Salt Fires
