27 Days once again explores the imponderables of time travel. The heroine finds her life turned upside down when she shifts 8 years into the future. No longer recognised as the respected doctor she was, she has to start life again without any qualifications and with no one except her twin sister recognising her for who she is. At the point of a total breakdown, she encounters the myths and legends of West Coast Natives, and during a trip to the remote and mysterious islands of Haida Gwaii, is offered insights into Haida culture which sets her on the road to healing. Set on the wild West Coast of British Columbia and on Haida Gwaii, Amanda’s book delves into the relationship between modern society and the ancient cultures of the original inhabitants of British Columbia.
