Overview
Solstice Magic is a tale about cowboys and love and fantasy, about living in the real world when another magical world is just under the surface of everything you know. Set in Alberta, Canada, the story explores both the land’s Ukrainian influence and its rodeo heritage. It’s a novel about truth when truth is not what you expect it to be.
Description
Solstice Magic celebrates the cowboys of the Calgary Stampede in a fantastic romp that ricochets from stock dog trials to rabbit hopping clubs to romance. Read about the magical world of cowboys, rabbits, and Ukrainian goddesses that unfolds when Zo’s gruff baba from Ukraine arrives with her savage Caucasian Ovchorka dog. The ensuing chaos of clashing cultures catapults the characters into the extreme sport of rodeo at the Calgary Stampede. There, Vince Lapin, bull-rider extraordinaire, meets up with Susie Lago, protégé of Zo, and the outcome for the other rodeo contestants as well as the animal athletes changes stampede history. Good thing Zo has a best friend with an attractive older brother to soften the trauma. Solstice Magic is magical realism for everybody who ever wished to be more than they are.
About the author
Jean Stringam grew up on a ranch in southern Alberta reading stories, making music, and riding horses. The summer was never complete without a trip to the Calgary Stampede. She writes the books for the series, A Calgary Stampede Adventure, out of her admiration for Alberta’s cowboys, and a fascination with immigrant diversity that keeps her coming home year after year. She has worn many hats, from piano teacher to English professor and from member of SAG to member of SCBWI, and has lived in half a dozen US states, plus England, France, and China. Her definition of home is wherever the people she loves happen to live. She thinks stories are wonderful because you can live everywhere you can imagine and be anyone you can envision. Jean Stringam writes an original song for each of her books.
