Remember the Good Times, a novel by Saskatchewan author Karson Braaten

Synopsis:  My university graduation was just a few weeks away.  I had a great job making iPhone apps lined up for the spring and would be backpacking through Southeast Asia in the summer.  In fewer words, my life felt on track.  Then came the evening of May 28th, 2012 when I received an indescribable phone call from my dad.

During that brief call, I learned that my 23-year old cousin, Hayley, alongside her 2-year-old son, Cayden, were murdered by her husband before he took his own life also.


The weeks that followed tormented me in ways I had never know.  I was trying to get better but nothing seemed to work.  Looking back o it now, I can see the things that helped and the many things that didn't.  This book chronicles the months which followed that call and illustrates the lessons that, for the most part, transformed the most tragic and painful even in my life into a source of strength and inspiration.
