In 1922 a lone woman arrives in a filthy frontier mining town in the Pacific Northwest. Her goal: to resurrect her dead uncle's newspaper. Within two days a naked man is shot dead, a famous man is rumoured to be heading their way and the only man capable of fixing her broken-down press so that she might spread this news is a Chinese printer from the nearby forbidden settlement of Lousetown. Over the next month, Lila Sinclair will take even bigger risks to see her business thrive-from her questionable news reporting to her negotiations with a partner who's a liar and a gambler. Reckless, stubborn and with a maddening tendency to shed tears when provoked, Lila works long hours next to her printer to see her dream through, only to discover all that she could lose.

Throughout I was tossed one way, then another: entertaining, then slow; calm, then wild. It left me unsure what I was thinking of the story. Even the setting is unsure: set in British Columbia, by the sea, small town, coal mining. My closest guess of a model the author used for this fictional town would be Britannia Beach.
In the end, I see what the author meant to portray. That through all the chaos and unknowns that happen to us each day, we have to bare ourselves in the end, not let others direct us, and live the life we want to live.
I'm not sure whether the style of writing is my favorite. I appreciate the message, the story was interesting/chaotic enough to keep me entertained and interested. But that's about all.

I think if the writing style works for the reader, the story will resonate more.
