The Sicilian Wife

The National Post has chosen The Sicilian Wife as one of its Best Books of the Year!

# 55. The Sicilian Wife, Caterina Edwards (Linda Leith Publishing, 280 pp; $20)
“Set in the contrasting climates of Sicily and Edmonton, this literary noir is a masterful tale of family, murder, and the inescapable pull of the past.”

Lit Up recommends The Sicilian Wife as one of its best mysteries of 2015:

“This noir-ish read about a Mafia princess doing her best to escape her crime family is part folk tale, part feminist critique, and all engrossing.”Who Would Love This Book “This is the feminist answer for fans of The Godfather, with all the urgency and pacing of the classic film.”

Both French and English editions are available at the site

Both books are also available at Chapters Indigo and in both paperback and epub format.
