Advance Praise

“The Blue Riviera is not just a family memoir of characters and events, but rather the author’s thoughtful and courageous investigation and exposé of the rationale for behaviours encompassing the historical, societal, psychological and spiritual realities that shaped them and ultimately herself. Roxanne Davies’s search for the truth about her mother’s untimely death is a journey filled with probing questions, probable explanations and an indisputable, though unconventional discovery. For the reader, this is a page turner that reads to the last page with a sense of urgency.

“Skillfully weaving the past with the present, Roxanne Davies delves with a loving hand into the stories of her big Ukrainian family and its unsolved mysteries. Davies writes with tremendous vulnerability and candour about her deep Catholic beliefs while seeking out taboo spiritualists for answers to her young mother’s death. Anyone with a shadowy family history will understand and love this book.”

“Roxanne Davies’s The Blue Riviera is a touching account of an archetypal search – a daughter’s search for a more complete understanding of a missing, beloved parent. This book reveals the tenderness and love that make us human. Highly recommended!”
