Fiction: general and literary
Phoebe’s Way is the story of a Saint John Ambulance therapy dog whose unsentimental lessons on aging propel this powerful work of fiction from author Pamela Ditchoff. Phoebe’s cross is carried throughout the rooms of Mersey House, a nursing home in Safe Harbour, Nova Scotia. Each chapter represents a station of the journey and an insight into the emotional weight born by the residents and those who care for them. Layered with symbolism in the precise and poetic language of Phoebe, this poignant story is for anyone who has felt the burden of time slowing them down, who has watched elderly loved ones live more in their memories than in the present, or who has ever loved a dog and witnessed how naturally they break through barriers with the promise of hope.

Pamela Ditchoff is the author of five novels, two teaching texts, and poetry in literary magazines and anthologies. She has taught creative writing at university level and to primary and secondary students through Writers in Schools Program. Pamela lives in Liverpool, Nova Scotia.
