After spending some time searching for her, Devon St. Clair the author of Shadow Women invited Myrea Pettit to produce the cover art for her book.
The vision of Devon St. Claire portrays certain women in Upper Midwestern society. Endowed with inalienable rights and privileges and voices however quiet, these women find a champion in Marielle Claire Lanier, herself once living in silence. Her writing seminars provide therapy unique and pervasive for many women. Then with full per-mission and gentle urging of the Mountain Men, Marielle relates their story of interaction in cyberspace with their treasured heroine/author. Dramatizing for effect on occasion, she studiously remains true to “what happened next” in the lives of Louis Campeau, Bernard Campeau, Claude LaRoche, Michel Gouget, Jakob Gustafson, and Rune Tunby, and in the lives of others eager to share how a little book changed them.
With their permission, Shadow Women portrays real people, places and events in Invermere, B.C. The language of these people of the Canadian Rockies is largely unedited as they interact via email with a Minnesota writer, Marielle Claire Lanier, whose first book comes into their hands one cold winter.
