Livvy Higgs is an elderly woman who lives alone in Halifax. Over the course of a couple of days, while Livvy’s health fails, a series of dreams take us back to her childhood growing up on a French Coastal town in Newfoundland. She remembers details of her childhood with her mom, dad and close neighbor friends but as Livvy’s memories intensify we learn about the shocking family secrets that were kept from her. Filled with evocative prose and stunning historical detail,  The Deception of Livvy Higgs is being described as The Stone Angel of the East Coast.
