The Stopping Place

(2008)
A novel by

 
 
Ruby works at the library. Shelving, mainly. She'd rather be in the archive, but Martha's the one being groomed for greatness. Martha of the flamboyant bohemian style and russet-toned beauty, and the affairs with unsuitable men. Ruby can see the appeal of the affairs. The heat, the danger. Ruby sees a lot, loitering there behind Geography 910-maybe even enough to bring her out of hiding. And that could be a problem. Because everyone has history, especially someone who's trying desperately to hide from it. In The Stopping Place Helen Slavin's delicious observational humour lights up the unexpectedly mysterious depths of the suburban library, as she tells the story of a woman whose past has compelled her to become invisible.
