Swamp AngelBook - 1990
"Walking out on a demoralizing second marriage, Maggie Lloyd leaves Vancouver to work at a fishing lodge in the interior of British Columbia. But the serenity of Maggie's new surroundings is soon disturbed by the irrational jealousy of the lodge-keeper's wife. Restoring her own broken spirit, Maggie must also become a healer to others. In this, she is supported by her eccentric friend, Nell Severance, whose pearl-handled revolver - the Swamp Angel - becomes Maggie's ambiguous talisman and the novel's symbolic core. Ethel Wilson's best-loved novel, 'Swamp Angel' first appeared in 1954. It remains an astute and powerful study of one woman's integrity and of the redemptive power of compassion."-- Publisher.
