“A celebration of life involves stories.” 

Above is the first line of the last chapter of this picaresque novel. Set in the summer of 2008 in the small fictional town of Dellport on the shores of Lake Huron, it tells the story of Shirley Palmer who has a different bucket list from most of her contemporary baby boomers.

One thought on “synopsis”

  1. I thoroughly enjoyed reading What Shirley Missed and what fun Donna Wootton must have had writing it. Shirley’s decision to disregard how her actions would affect those in her circle was disturbing at first and then entrancing. She turned many of her relationships upside down and left everyone wondering what had happened. A great novel!
