Cover art by Audrey Bunt
Finding Maria (Marechal Media Inc.) is a newly published book by Nova Scotia writer Jennifer Hatt. The image on the front cover of the book, is an original painting by Island artist Audrey Bunt, who lives in Pembroke (audreybunt.com).
Audrey Bunt was approached by a collector of her artwork, to do the cover for the book: “I was given a basic outline of what was needed on the cover. When I received the published book and read it, I was pleasantly surprised at how much the cover worked for the story. I was also very amazed that this was Jennifer Hatt’s first published book. It is a wonderful story, which is very well told.”
The story’s central character is Jack Brandugan. His memories are separate, spent, and packed away, never again to be needed. But the assignment of a writer to aid Jack in his corporate tasks, awakens a journey once embraced but long-forgotten. This launches a modern-day storyline as Jack and Gwen explore the enduring message of The Sound of Music.
Finding Maria is available at Indigo on University Ave.
