Welcome to the world of Sunshine Bay, a small community on Vancouver Island, just off Canada’s west coast. 

Jeanine Lauren writes stories about the women who live there. Women who have loved a few decades and experienced life’s  trials and tribulations and joys and celebrations.  

In June, meet Sylvia, a woman who has lost her husband, her job, her purpose,  and is struggling against depression and hopelessness.  And meet the duo she encounters at the local park: Jack, a man who has experienced his own share of loss, and a feral cat who needs someone to care.  Will this duo give Sylvia a reason to hope? Or even an opportunity to love again?

In late summer we will meet Louise, a woman who has retired from her job and is now looking for her next adventure. Will Wayne, a  younger man from her past, be that adventure?
