Susan Philpott sets the stage with an underground railroad BLOWN RED by PHILPOTT, SUSAN published 2015.
First novel, Canadian author That was enough to attract me.
This novel is a quick moving action packed drama that, like a James Patterson, or Jeffrey Archer, I would read quickly and give it 3 stars for a good read and good research but not even stardust for the literary strength But, happily to report, as a Canadian, I am pleased that she is not a quick read type of novelist Susan PHILPOTT deserves much than stardust for literary strength Let me explain in my opinion In this novel, the author has shown an ability to cross the line, not follow a strict formula and isn t addressing just the beach crowd There is subtle existentialism in the novel in particularly for women who like the Thomas the Tank Engine metaphor, not only think they can, but also prove they can accomplish what they set out d I love reading suspense and thriller novels, so when I found out Susan Philpott would be speaking in Orillia at The Writers Community of Simcoe County s meeting, I was sure to be in attendance I wanted to hear all about the making of a great Canadian Thriller Susan did not disappoint us She shared many secrets with us regarding how Signy Shepherd went from having no parents, being raised in foster care to becoming a kickass female protagonist in her debut novel.

comI love books that are set in Canada, or specifically, in around Toronto where I currently live Susan Philpott shows her Canadian pride in her debut novel Blown Red, scattering familiar landmarks surrounding my fair city throughout these pages I immediately felt connected to the book and to the characters.
Blown Red is basically a thrilling road trip across Canada from Vancouver to Toronto, with Signy Shepard escorting a young girl down the line to a safe house in Toronto The line is a modern day underground railroad, transporting abused and endangered women through a line of other women until they are somewhere safe and well away from their abusers It s a really interesting premise and a detailed operation Of course, along the way Signy hits so
