In the fictional village of Rocky Point, Cape Breton, just after WWII, the Briar family keeps a secret. Locked in his room, Joseph Briar, a child with visible and non- visible disabilities, is hidden from the community. And what Alfie Johns discovers through Joseph’s window will lead him to love and a future, framing beauty in photographs. Harkening back to John Steinbeck’s Of Mice and Men and Frances Hodgson Burnett’s The Secret Garden, Beatrice MacNeil reveals the destructive power of shame and the redemptive power of art.


“The Geranium Window is a novel to be treasured for both its profound psychological and philosophical insights and for the sheer beauty of MacNeil’s writing.”

– Margaret Patricia Eaton, Atlantic Books Today


“If you favour a gratifying and engrossing story with a balance of tragedy and happiness, then you will enjoy The Geranium Window”
