“Bobbi French embarks on a story that forces us to consider that we are more than the things that have happened to us and that we all have an impact during our time on earth.”
Incredibly grateful for this gorgeous review of The Good Women of Safe Harbour by Joanne Gallant for The Miramichi Reader!
Stunned & so, so grateful to see The Good Women of Safe Harbour on the longlist for my favourite lit award on the planet: The Dublin Literary Award!! Never could I have imagined my little book being in such fine company!! And I’m so proud to be representing NL for this prestigious award.
My endless thanks to Hilary McMahon of Westwood Creative Artists, Jenn Lambert & everyone at HarperCollins Canada, and of course to NLPublic Libraries for nominating the book. No love like library love.
Have you ever wondered why I wrote The Good Women of Safe Harbour?
Well, wonder no more! I’ve got a little blurb featured on The Miramichi Reader’s Why I Wrote this Book section.
You can find it »here«.
Apparently, some folks want to hear what I have to say… so I spent a little time speaking with Emily Gushue, NL Collections Librarian at the Newfoundland & Labrador Public Libraries. Enjoy!
CrossTalk with Adam Walsh did a piece on NL Reads, with Jamie Fitzpatrick sitting in for Adam.

A powerfully touching celebration of friendship and forgiveness, The Good Women of Safe Harbour is about a woman who finally gives herself a chance to love and be loved.
