On behalf of the Carol Shields Literary Trust, welcome. With this web site, we hope to encourage you to read the wonderful books that are Carol Shields' legacy. They are as engaging and relevant today as the day she wrote them. We hope that those of you who have enjoyed Carol's books in the past will take another look at her work and discover some gems that you may have missed or re-read an old favourite. For those of you who have never curled up with a Carol Shields book, you are in for a rare treat.

Thank you for visiting and happy reading.
