Read full description of the books:
When nine-year-old Tom Newton is saved from icy death by a stranger who disappears into the night, the story captures public attention. The tabloid Star eventually identifies the unknown hero as a wealthy, reclusive publisher, Owen Adair. Sara Newton wants nothing more than to thank her son’s rescuer from the bottom of her heart. The Star wants that too, as long as they have an exclusive. Then a blizzard intervenes, pushing the participants in unexpected directions.
Set at Christmastime, Owen’s Day is the story of a man who gives too much, and the family and city who insist on thanking him. Along the way it explores the value of risk-taking as a catalyst for human progress.

Read information about the authorHelen Yeomans tried her hand at short stories, scripts and screenplays before settling on the novel as the form she liked best.
Starting out in the publishing industry, she worked in Toronto (Prentice-Hall) and London (Mitchell-Beazley) before founding her own company in Vancouver, providing editing and writing services to business clients worldwide. Her first book, The Christmas Carol Handbook, was published in 1987 and sold 10,000 copies.
She fell into fiction writing by accident while exploring the film industry as a source of editorial contracts. After writing three feature length film scripts, one of which was optioned, she tried her hand at shorter scripts then other fiction forms, including short stories for children.
Owen’s Day, her first novel, continued the Christmas theme with its story of a man who gives too much. Published in 2011, it was followed a year later by Ang Tak (“Little Tiger”), a story of international intrigue centered on an amateur golfer and his caddie at the Masters. In November 2013 came The Money Tree, about a close-knit family living on the Gulf Islands of British Columbia, and their unusual trees. The story explores the stability of paper money and family. Most recently, Return to Kaitlin is a story of a young man’s odyssey across northern Canada.
Late in 2015 came A Knock at the Door, a collection of stories for children. The characters in these stories are letters and the letters have personalities, and spelling evolved in a way not described in the OED. A Knock at the Door is a finalist in the 2015 Wishing Shelf Awards.
