The Final Canoe Ride
This is a must read! Fast paced & page turner. I never write reviews, but this book was just so good, I had too! The author connects all aspects to make you feel so interested in the characters in this book. We all know someone who has had breast cancer, this book invites you to really see what they go through and gives you insight into the range of emotions and physical dealings. Not only is breast cancer addressed but also history of the main character’s family and life traumas they dealt with. This story is beautifully written that brings all aspects of life together. Don’t hesitate read this book!
The Rule of Thirds
This book gives so many insights
into how healing one's Mental, Physical and Spiritual strengths after they have experienced loss in their own life, can lead to ways they can use their creative gifts and "The Rule of Thirds" to help others heal themselves, too. An incredibly special book with beautiful illustrations and an additional wonderful surprise inside, too!
Another great book by Inger Margaret Foster!!!
After having immersed myself in Ms. Foster’s book, “The Final Canoe Ride,” I was looking forward to seeing what she would come up with next. Needless to say, I was not disappointed. I just finished reading “Split Soul,” which I believe is Ms. Foster’s second book. This is one of those books that you simply can’t put down! With its blend of mystery, spirituality and reality, each chapter makes you all the more curious to find out what will happen next. I kept wondering how Ms. Foster would pull all the parts of this together and reach a conclusion that would make sense. All I can say is that the ending is so perfectly crafted, that it clearly shows that Ms. Foster is a master storyteller! Loved it.
Just finished reading "Circles" and it was wonderful! Having read all 5 of your books starting with "The Final Canoe Ride", I've gotten attached to your recurring characters, especially Meg. I love the synchronicity of the split souls (circles) and the comfort, hope and magic they bring to all of us that have lost loved ones. Your books beautifully remind us that although human life is finite our spiritual energy lives on forever especially for those with open hearts and minds.
Your writing comes from a place of love, humor, great empathy, fun and your beautiful artistic soul that knows no bounds. I was a bit sad knowing that I was saying goodbye to Meg in this 5th book but I'm also reassured to know that you have many more stories to tell ahead of you. I look forward to reading them!! As an avid reader, I highly recommend Inger's books!
This is the third book of the author Inger M. Foster. Although it is a prequel to the other two books, it is a wonderful story on its own. It brings the reader back to the days of high school and young love. It’s the story of two young people, each with their own family secrets, trying to navigate the path of a first love. This story continues the character of Meg Pedersen through the eyes and memories of her early teen years. The story adds in history and fantasy to the reader’s delight. I enjoy the author’s writing style and it’s mix of fact and fiction. She never disappoints. I was always excited for the next chapter. I can’t wait to see what she has next.
I LOVE all the books by author,
Inger Margaret Foster. Mandy's Dream
is her latest and although there is a connection between the 4 books, they can be read individually without losing anything. Mandy's Dream is a charming, very readable book that is positive and comforting. During these tough times it is such a relief to be able to engage with a book on an emotionally appealing level. It is a heartwarming and uplifting story. I also think it is also suitable for many age groups from teens to adults.
Back In The Before
This is a ‘coming of age’ story, though the person is in her 50’s. Mandy Ashworth is like so many of us, running through life, trying to get by, get through and survive, leaving little time to reflect on exactly how she got to where she is in life. Recently divorced and a mother of two incredible sons, she enters a period in her life where she encounters not only people from her past, but, out of nowhere, even her endearing childhood stuffed toy, Timmy the giraffe. Floodgates open in Mandy’s mind, flashes of her past, losing her parents at a young age, and the years following. Taking the journey with her is her elderly friend, Elke. Elke seems somehow magical and mystical and the key to much of Mandy’s past. Elke too, has been on her own life journey. Through Elke’s journal, we learn, and knowing full well, like all things, life circles around once more, yet evolves.
A fascinating story!
Grace and Stephen, at the beginning of a new
relationship, embark on a trip overseas. By changing the perspective of the storyline, using alternating back and forth chapters, the author allows the reader into each character's mindset. Without giving away the story, each character carries a burden that they fear the other will not accept. But through a few bumbling moments along the way, they learn to appreciate each other more and more, and gain mutual acceptance

Inger Margaret Foster
Born in Montreal, Quebec, Inger and her family immigrated to the United States in the early 1960’s. Growing up in the quiet suburban town of Ramsey, New Jersey, she attended Ramsey High School, where she developed her love for both writing and art. As an art major at William Paterson University, she eventually earned her Masters in Visual Arts, with concentrations in English and Education.
Inger returned to her love of writing after her children headed to college. Essays became short stories, and the short stories eventually evolved into her first novel, The Final Canoe Ride, where the reader first meets Meg, a woman in her late forties who is struggling with an unexpected onset of breast cancer. Through dreams and flashbacks, Meg’s back story is developed, a story that is to be explored again throughout the other novels.
Inger is married and living in the Northeast, US. She is the mother of three amazing adult children and two wonderful daughters-in-law and is now a grandmother!
