The little shadows by Marina Endicott( Book )

21 editions published between 2011 and 2014 in English and held by 451 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The Little Shadows revolves around three sisters in the world of vaudeville before and during the First World War. We follow the lives of all three in turn: Aurora, the eldest and most beautiful, who is sixteen when the book opens; thoughtful Clover, a year younger; and the youngest sister, joyous headstrong sprite Bella, who is thirteen. The girls, overseen by their fond but barely coping Mama, are forced to make their living as a singing act after the untimely death of their father. They begin with little besides youth and hope, but Marina Endicott's genius is to show how the three girls slowly and steadily evolve into true artists even as they navigate their way to adulthood among a cast of extraordinary characters - some of them charming charlatans, some of them unpredictable eccentrics, and some of them just ordinary-seeming humans with magical gifts

Clara Purdy crashes into a car carrying the Gage family, who had been travelling to a new life in Fort McMurray. When bruises on the mother, Lorraine, prove to be late-stage cancer rather than remnants of the accident. Clara moves everyone into her own house, and as Lorraine walks the borders of death, Clara expands into life, finding purpose, energy and unexpected love. But the burden is not Clara's alone: Lorraine's children must cope with divided loyalties and Lorraine must live with her growing, unpayable debt to Clara - and the feeling that Clara has taken her place. Winner of the Commonwealth Writers' Prize Best Book Award, Canada and the Caribbean. Some descriptions of sex and some strong language. 2008

On Monday, a fall from a ladder leaves Hugh with a fractured vision of the pain, dying parents, shaky marriages, failure of every kind, suffered by those close to him. His friends are one missed ladder-rung from going under emotionally, physically, and financially. Somebody's got to fix them all. And it probably has to be Hugh. Meanwhile, beneath the adult orbit, bright young lives are taking form: the sons and daughters of Hugh's friends are about to graduate from high school and already floating away from the gravitational pull of their parents. As complicated bonds form and break in texts and ticks on multiplying media, the desires, terrors, and revelations of adolescence are mirrored in the second adolescence of the adults
