My Summer with Vi
by Susan Jonson

A deep friendship develops between a twelve year old girl and an elderly woman that will change both of their lives. Althea's thirst for a world bigger than her own, leads her to Violet who welcomes the opportunity to share her experiences, her stories and her kitchen with a younger soul. Through their mutual love of music, travel and food, they inspire each other to become better human beings. Four years later Althea makes an amazing discovery that will change the course of Vi's life and cement their friendship forever.

My Summer with Vi is a nostalgic and heartwarming tale that will take you back to another time and place.

This is Susan Jonson's debut novella. Her love of ethnic food, travel and music, inspired her to put pen to paper and My Summer with Vi became a reality. Susan and her husband enjoy travelling to Mexico each year to escape the cold Canadian winter. She is an avid supporter of the fine arts community, as well as the local music scene in her home town of Winnipeg, Manitoba, Canada. A wonderful evening would be listening to some great music while cooking in her tiny kitchen. She enjoys collecting small unique vintage boxes, the intoxicating aroma of beeswax candles, and beautiful textiles from around the world.
