Just Fine by France Daigle
Book DescriptionJust Fine is a touching and often hilarious novel that traces the mishaps and misadventures of a conflicted agoraphobe: a woman psychologically restricted to a life indoors but spiritually inclined to wander the meadows, roads, and community beyond the house and river of her youth. Her struggle assumes historic proportions when her neighbors in the small town of Dieppe begin to dream of their own escapes from the insular, predictable cadences of life in Acadia: Camil changes his name; Terry embarks on a voyage of discovery; Carmen studies exotic river deltas; Elizabeth searches for a transcendent love; and the woman at the center of it all, the agoraphobe, dreams of travelling to Paris and telling her story to a French television star. The course of their endeavors, like the river that dominates Dieppe, twists and turns, and playfully reveals a landscape of wonderment and new beginnings. In its brilliant collage of river lore, art history, astrology, and mythology France Daigle's rich and witty novel journeys beyond the cultural, psychological, and literary bounds within which its characters live and leads us to where history, fantasy, and memory collide.
