Calmer Secrets Setting in Pictures

This is Part Two of the Calmer Girls series setting in pictures.

Calmer Secrets takes place in Newfoundland in 1997-98, four years later than the first book. (The Calmer Girls Book One setting pictorial can be seen here.)

First, let’s take a look at Samantha’s school in Corner Brook, Memorial University’s Grenfell Campus on the west coast of the province. Samantha is enrolled in the Visual Arts program there.

When Samantha returns to St. John’s during a school break, she goes downtown with Veronica and her friends. In one of the George Street clubs, she sees cover band, Cold Plate, and is reunited with her high school friend Kalen there.

Later in the story, tragedy strikes.
The youngest character in the book is brought to the Janeway Children’s Hospital,
the one that existed at that time.
A new facility was built a couple of years later.

          1. I would never have taken on the picture book journey if U had a crystal ball and had seen all the road blocks so far, but so glad I went on this journey Jennifer. It truly is about the journey and not the destination, happy spring day to you xxx

            1. Yes the journey is what it’s about, I know. Sometimes though it is such an uphill climb. (Don’t mind me, I’m going through a period of self-doubt right now that hopefully will pass soon) I know your book is going to be something very special. πŸ’•β€οΈπŸ’•
