“Shaking Tent” is based on true events and inspired by a personal photograph taken by the author in this historical fiction. Bexley Hargrove, a successful corporate lawyer at a prestigious law firm in Chicago, teams up with a Canadian law firm fighting for the rights of a twelve-year-old great-granddaughter, whose life is in limbo after her parent’s death. The one-hundred-year old great-grandfather’s claim to her guardianship is questionable after he contracts a rare cancer. Unexpected family reunions unveil deep secrets, harbored for nearly a century, as the lives of these people become entrenched in the largest class action law suit ever awarded in Canada, while a second law suit is about to go public. This endearing historical fiction involves a love story that blooms through tragedy, the cultural beliefs of fairies and the little people who live in the hoodoos, the double jeopardy of the First Nations people based on the IRSSA award and current protests of the Alberta Oil Sands Projects. The story culminates in a beautiful unexpected ending; just when the reader thinks they have figured out the story, something else happens—a thrilling plot from beginning to end. The tale was first inspired by a single photograph taken by the author in 1979 and further motivated by an event in 2016, when a half billion fish went belly up in the waters around Chicago. The author includes the emotional, gut-wrenching apologies of the Pope, the Government of Canada and many other religious faiths and leaves the reader wanting to do something, anything to further the causes!
