The Widows

Nominated for the Commonwealth Prize for Best Book in the Canada-Caribbean Region!

Hannelore, Clotilde, and Frau Schnadelhuber are three old women tired of living in a world that does not allow old women to be seen or heard. On a whim, the three women plot to go over Niagara Falls in a bright orange space-age barrel. With the assistance of Cleopatra Maria, the 26-year-old genius granddaughter of Hannelore and grandniece of Clotilde, the four women steal the barrel from a travelling show and drive it across Canada determined to prove their worth to a world devoted to youth.
