Thrice Upon a Time is the story of the search for the identity of an abandoned child -- an inventive novel which is at once a gripping mystery and a morally resounding feminist history, set in British Columbia.
"Thrice Upon a Time is a wildly inventive novel..."
– The Ottawa Citizen, Fall 1991
"There's a far-reaching imagination at work in this book.."
- The Globe & Mail, August 1990
"Genni Gunn's fine novel, Thrice Upon a Time, is a challenging combination of narratives that rewards the extra effort needed to read it...This novel is a creation of much originality, very successful in its newness, and well arranged -- the sort of book one wished would continue another hundred pages."
"Thrice Upon a Time is impressive in both craft and complexity."
