Stonich pens another 'north country' novel

By Amalia P. Spagnolo
Hibbing Daily Tribune

Stonich_Vacationland coverThough she is widely known and read, Stonich is rooted in the region. Her Slovenian grandparents settled in Ely. Though she and her family reside in the Twin Cities, she maintains her connection to the area and her sense of place by keeping a family cabin near the BWCA.

Her newest novel — like her previous work — is set in the North Country.

She noted that there are many stories of people’s experience “when they get there and what they take back with them.”

However, little is written about the roads taken to get there and those who line the roads to get there, she said.
