"The Curve of Time" Audiobook

When Wayne and I first came to Coastal BC, we wanted to learn more about boats so we could cruise in this amazing place. One of the first books we read was The Curve of Time by M. Wyle Blanchet. It's a classic about a widow, her five children, and dog who traveled the challenging BC coast in the Caprice, a 25-foot cedar hulled cruiser, during the 1920's and 30's.

The rugged and beautiful BC coast.
As Capi (Muriel Blanchet's nickname) and her youthful crew plied the waterways and anchorages, they met many coastal characters and critters. The BC coast is one place where the population has actually declined.  Reading about these hardy individualists, along with Muriel's experiences, took me back to a time when my new home was a much more remote and rugged place.

An audiobook version of M. Wyle Blanchet's classic The Curve of Time narrated by Heather Anne Henderson has just been released. You can read more about it on Heather's blog by clicking here. Also, there's a YouTube trailer you can watch.



The amazing thing, Heather's voice really makes me think that Capi is telling the story herself.

  1. That is a book that I read years ago and enjoyed very much. When you say coastal BC has declined in population - which areas do you mean? The sunshine coast area, the inside passage or Vancouver Island as a whole? We have not been up that way in many years. We would love to plan a trip to visit some remote areas again.

  3. What a great book. I must go to eclipse books in B'ham and try to find it.

    By the way the Barn Swallow story is a good one too. MB
