Annabel by Kathleen Winter

By Kathleen Winter

In 1968, into the attractive, spare atmosphere of distant coastal Labrador, a mysterious baby is born: a child who seems to be neither totally boy nor woman, yet either immediately. in basic terms 3 individuals are aware about the key - the baby's mom and dad, Jacinta and Treadway, and a relied on neighbour, Thomasina. jointly the adults make a tricky determination: to elevate the kid as a boy named Wayne. yet as Wayne grows to maturity in the hyper-masculine looking tradition of his father, his shadow-self - a woman he thinks of as "Annabel"- isn't solely extinguished, and certainly is secretly nurtured by means of the ladies in his existence.

Haunting and sweeping in scope, Annabel is a compelling story approximately one person's fight to find the reality in a tradition that shuns contradiction.
