Anne of Oasis: a novel
Sharon Baltman
Sharon Baltman / Softcover / Jun 2021
Fiction / Toronto-Area Authors
price: $22.50
160 pages
In Stock (Ships within one business day)

An eccentric seventy-year-old is obsessed with changing her life -- or ending it. She bumbles through mysterious rituals with a talk-therapist, explodes secrets, re-jigs behaviours and embraces bliss in the arms of a woman who was right in front of her for fifty years.


The character of Anne is so well drawn, that by the end of the book, she feels like a friend or someone you know and are rooting for. The depiction of therapy is fascinating -- it's obvious that Sharon Baltman knows of what she speaks.
-Maureen Jennings, author of the Murdoch Mysteries

A wry, empathetic portrait of a character's unsparing trek to the heart of the matter in matters of the heart.
-Ted Staunton, author of Who I'm Not and Jump Cut

Anne is authentic, cranky and funny. Baltman does a great job of preventing the therapist from overwhelming the story, yet shows her value. The end of the beautiful tale gave me chills.
-Sharon Gernon, retired psychotherapist
