Qualicum Beach author releases second book

The fictional book follows three families' stories

Qualicum Beach resident Carollyne Haynes has released another book.

A Matter of Issue, which can be purchased at both Mulberry Bush Book Store locations and Amazon, weaves a tale of birthrights, inheritances, elder abuse and  second-time-around love story.

Haynes said the book is like opening Pandora’s Box since it talks about the issues of aging and seniors remarrying.

“I like to shine a spotlight on contemporary issues,” she said.

Haynes said she spent four years working on the novel, which she first got the idea for while she was at the hairdresser’s and overheard a woman talking about how she was remarried and didn’t think her son was being treated fairly.

“Next thing I know, the hair dryer is on my head and I started thinking,” Haynes said. She said the book went through four edits.

“Every time I wrote it, I slipped in a whole other story,” said Haynes, adding that the novel follows three families blended together.
