A collection of stories set in the changing landscape of mid-century rural Canada, exploring the disruptions brought by modernization, which translate into rupture for the lives of those who once were able to depend on life making sense. Seen through the lives of a series of women, In Progress explores how outer circumstance impact our inner lives.

The stories that make up Catharine Leggett's masterly new collection,
In Progress, demonstrate the writer's ability to convey, within the confines of
a single narrative, the entirety of the lives of the girls and women who make up her subjects--unlikely narrators who are, nevertheless, heartbreakingly reliable. Just as each part of a hologram contains a particular perspective of the image, it also includes the entire object. So, too, do these stories. Chronic disappointment metastasizes into a bedrock of scar tissue to found a life upon; self-sacrifice goes postal; and no one is who they seem--you may never look at the woman who tops your coffee off at the donut shop the same, or the checkout girl at the grocery store. Meticulously crafted, humane, but never sentimental, and firmly anchored in its time and place, In Progress gives the reader much to ponder and even more to savour.
--Melissa Hardy, author of A Cry of Bees, Broken Road, Surface Rights, Constant Fire, The Uncharted Heart, and others
