“Finding Hope, The Highway of Tears, is a fictional depiction of a true real-life horror story. Gagnon tells us the story of Hope, who goes missing along the notorious Highway #16, in northern B.C. and is sought by retired Detective Norm Strom. Engrossing plot, engaging characters, and superb imagery make this a hard story to put down. This well-written and timely account of a truly heart-wrenching problem, is well worth the read.”—Christine Hayton – Author, Samhain Publishing Ltd.
“Fix yourself a cup of tea and settle in for a great rainy-day read. You’re not going to want to put down “Finding Hope.” The author takes you on a haunting ride up western Canada’s Highway #16, from Calgary to Hyder, Alaska. Along the way, retired Detective Norm Strom meets Hope Lachance, and then helps the RCMP try to find her after she’s gone missing. Strom learns the real reason why the aboriginal people call the route, The Highway of Tears.” —Caroline Hartman – Author of Summer Rose
“Ed Gagnon weaves fiction and reality into an exciting story about the Canadian women who have gone missing along The Highway of Tears, in northern British Columbia. More than a book about crimes against women and the lack of attention from law enforcement, Finding Hope is about prejudice, despair, and the courage of one woman named Hope.” – Ben Van Dongen – Co-Author of No Light Tomorrow
