  • Contributor: Herst, Roslyn

    Summer 1960's. At northern Ontario's Kalyna Beach, Ukrainian-Canadian women are exchanging their 'racy' novels with one another, but real life provides a more interesting story. There is Sonia Martyn, unhappy because she is no longer young and has sacrificed her career and beauty to bear and raise children, and Sasha Plotsky, content because she sees more pros than cons in having a family. While they strongly feel the need to be with their own kind, the women experience the sense of claustrophobia such insularity inevitably induces. Some descriptions of sex. 2007.
