Friends, Six Women, Six Cultures, One Humanity is a novel to honour and celebrate Canada’s diversity. Six women from profoundly different cultures and belief systems meet weekly at a salon. We watch them rising and falling as they encounter or avoid life’s challenges such as: love, success, aloneness, addiction, depression, family violence, forgiveness, courage, compassion, leadership and more. In time they recognize their possibilities and discover that rising to be the best one can be as a human supersedes all their differences.

“In the fast-paced story-telling style of the Celestine Prophecies, Love Morrison’s book offers up a slice of history at a time in the early 70’s, when the pace of life changed and took humanity on a giant leap forward, toward our now emerging global culture. Compelling and insightful, this is a fun read that drew me into the fascinating perspective of Canada’s multi-cultural mosaic while telling stories that are laced with drama, spiritual insights and perennial philosophy.”
