Fiction. Based on a true story, TELL ANNA SHE'S SAFE is the tale of two women, one missing, the other searching for her. Driving home alongside West Quebec's Gatineau River one April afternoon, researcher Ellen McGinn spots a parked car that looks like it might belong to her friend and colleague, Lucy Stockman. Lucy, a freelance writer, lives in nearby Ottawa. Shortly after arriving home, Ellen receives a phone call from Lucy's common-law partner: Lucy has disappeared. That night Ellen has an unusual dream in which she receives three clear messages: she is to search and to write everything down--and Lucy is safe. Through the intertwining stories of Ellen and Lucy and the enduring presence of the river, TELL ANNA SHE'S SAFE takes the reader below the sometimes frightening, uncontrollable surface circumstances of our lives, to reveal the steady current of power and knowing we all hold within.
