No Missing Parts by Anne Laurel Carter

Book Description

"Resource Links Best of the Year Centuries ago, Princess Sheila NaGeira finds herself stranded with her lover on a rocky outcrop ten leagues from Newfoundland's shore. In the late nineteenth century, Sybil finds love in the parched badlands of Drumheller. During World War II, Ruthie retrieves the ring that her dead brother gave to an unfaithful girl friend before he left to fight in the war. Today, Tess fears that her new-age boyfriend, Guy, had flown the coop and left her pregnant."No Missing Parts" is for those who like princesses that are nothing like Sleeping Beauty or Cinderella. It is for those who believe that love can save us, but that it never appears as a handsome prince. It is for those who would like to confront the princess myth and, instead of bowing politely, challenge its very foundations.The stories collected here range over centuries, celebrating real princesses: women who become leaders, who defy social conventions, and who learn the hard way what it means to fall in love without giving up part of oneself.

Author Biography - Anne Laurel Carter

Anne Laurel Carter was born in Don Mills, Ontario, in 1953. She left home at 17 to work on a kibbutz in Israel, then in England, France, and California. She returned home at 22 to complete a B.Ed. She taught in Cree communities of N. Quebec until hip dysplasia (the same condition that cripples golden retrievers) forced her to have her right hip rebuilt. It was months before she could walk again! She returned to Toronto to complete a M.Ed, and at 32-years old she got married and started a family.
