Beth Powning is the author of three memoirs—Seeds of Another Summer (published in the U.S. and in a new edition as Home: Chronicle of a North Country Life), Shadow Child, and Edge Seasons; and the best-selling novels The Hatbox Letters, The Sea Captain’s Wife, and A Measure of Light.

Reviews of her latest novel, A Measure of Light:

 "A dark, shatteringly exquisite book. Visceral and intense....Prose-wise, there isn't a page in A Measure of Light where something extraordinary doesn't happen. One of the finest books in the genre to come along."
The Globe and Mail

"Remarkable...a novel of great beauty... A Measure of Light is a keenly intelligent, memorable work of literature. Powning shows again that she is in the top tier of  Canadian novelists."
The Telegraph Journal
