Her first collection of stories, boys, won both the Winterset Award and the M...

Editorial Reviews

"Winter is a confident and engaging stylist, and her treatment of the material is kind and empathetic. For the many readers who admired Annabel and want to get to know its author better, Boundless is a tremendous gift." - Quill&Quire"Winter writes lyrically and compellingly." - Marcia Kaye, Toronto Star"[Winter's] transcendent pen, infused with starry wonder, never loses its dreamy, emotional pull." - Kimberly Bourgeois, Montreal Review of Books"This talent has no limit.a beautiful, thrilling ride." - Susan G. Cole, NOW Magazine"Her keen novelist's eye brings immediacy and vibrancy to many of the encounters.fresh and enjoyable." - Alexander Larman, The Guardian"[Boundless] is a deep book, meditative and thoughtful, but it is also compulsively readable, driven by an inexorable narrative drive and its keen attention to humanity in all its manifold complexities. It is the sort of book one will finish and return to." - Robert J. Wiersema, Globe and Mail"For the many readers who admired Annabel and want to get to know its author better, Boundless is a tremendous gift." - Angie Abdou, Quill & Quire"Winter's personal reflections on marriage, family, and past relationships, combined with her poetic observations of the Northern geography and people, breathe new energy into the traditional travelogue format." - Quill & Quire"It's an impressive book, one which belongs alongside the best of writers like Dillard and Terry Tempest Williams, writers who so root their work in themselves and the natural world that the work itself becomes transcendent." - Robert J. Wiersema, Globe and Mail"Graceful, poetic and shimmering prose." - Marcia Kaye, Toronto Star"Compulsively readable . . . it both heightens life and plumbs its deepest mysteries, laying bare the beauty of both the world and the soul." - Robert J. Wiersema, Globe and Mail
