I am absolutely THRILLED to share this exciting COVER REVEAL with you all today! 

The Coral Bride
by Roxanne Bouchard
translated by David Warriner

Published by Orenda Books
E book : 9 May 2020
Print : 9 July 2020 

When an abandoned lobster trawler is found adrift off the coast of Quebec’s Gaspé Peninsula, DS Joaquin Moralès begins a straightforward search for the boat’s missing captain, Angel Roberts – a rare female in a male-dominated world.

But Moralès finds himself blocked at every turn – by his police colleagues, by fisheries bureaucrats, and by his grown-up son, who has turned up at his door with a host of his own personal problems.

When Angel’s body is finally discovered, it’s clear something very sinister is afoot, and Moralès and son are pulled into murky, dangerous waters, where old resentments run deep.

Exquisitely written, with Bouchard’s trademark lyrical prose, The Coral Bride evokes the power of the sea on the communities who depend on it, the never-ending struggle between the generations, and an extraordinary mystery at the heart of both.

Ten years or so ago, Roxanne Bouchard decided it was time 
she found her sea legs. So she learned to
sail, first on the St Lawrence River, before taking to the open 
waters off the Gaspe Peninsula.
The local fishermen soon invited her aboard to reel in their 
lobster nets, and Roxanne saw for herself
that the sunrise over Bonaventure never lies.
Her fifth novel (first translated into English) 
We Were The Salt of the Sea was published in 2018 to 
resounding critical acclaim, sure to be followed by its sequel, 
The Coral Bride.
She lives in Quebec
