New wife and mother Julie is a woman struggling to find her place. Her dilemmas while modest feel harsh and reflect the ways in which women were once denied control over their own bodies. Her first steps toward independence bring great painand not only to herself. With sparing incisive prose Cynthia Flood unravels what it meant to be a married woman in post-war era Vancouver creating an evocative and even unsettling experience for the reader.


“With a precision of language that startles and delights, Cynthia Flood offers glimpses of those moments in which the essence of an entire life is revealed.” — Nancy Richler, author of The Imposter Bride

“What a great story! Told in terse, restrained sentences, yet opening to a lush and radiant heart, Addresses captures the anguish of a marriage gone off the rails, and the moments of redemption that arrive from unexpected places. Flood’s use of language is uniquely her own–staccato, clean as a knife, and brilliant. Cynthia Flood has done it again.” — Shaena Lambert, author of Oh My Darling

Addresses–the abruptness of the title tells so much about this exquisitely drawn story by Cynthia Flood. ‘Tell the truth but tell it slant,’ Emily Dickinson advised, and that’s always been the approach Flood has preferred for her bone-china fictions, edging into them sideways. Once escorted into the story’s arrhythmic heart, we readers have no choice but to immerse ourselves in a world long gone but still very much with us, to emerge both shaken and stirred.” — Dave Margoshes, author of A Book of Great Worth
