What Readers are Saying
Author Leonora Ross’s fictional “Tess Has a Broken Heart …” deserves to be read by all men and women, young and old, who have experienced the vagaries of love... This light- hearted novel is a gem to immerse yourself, page after page, in clean, clear, and entertaining prose. And, the final chapter notably wraps the narrative in a cleverly creative surprise.

I think many women will identify with Tess in this story, as she navigates friendships, love (and not love!) and life in general. It moves along at a great pace and you'll find yourself smiling with recognition at various times too. For me it was also an enjoyable escape - when reading I got totally immersed in the story and the characters. I feel like I know them now! Highly recommended!
- Suzy, Reader
There are few things more romantic than meeting the love of your life by chance... Fair warning: it's almost impossible not to fall in love with The Suncatchers' main character Luka...
...I loved reading The Suncatchers and would recommend it to those who love smart female leads and a good love story.

About Leonora Ross
I am an artist and fiction writer, living in Western Canada where big skies and expansive mountain ranges dominate the scene. It is a truly beautiful part of the world and I feel grateful every day to experience it.
I haven't always lived here, though. I was born and raised in Africa and my academic training was in law. But we never really stop learning. Even though it may take some time, the journeys we embark on in life, eventually bring us full circle back to ourselves and who we are meant to be. We just need to tune in to our souls and stay connected.
Mother Nature is my muse and obsession. When I'm out hiking on steep mountain trails and wandering through forests, my imagination runs wild. This is when ideas flood my mind, and I am most inspired to paint and write.
I often write about my trips on foot, which I share with close friends, and it was on the insistence of a very dear, longtime friend, that I've started taking my writing more seriously.
And what a mind-stretching adventure it has been so far! I am staying wide-open to learn more.
