PHIL BROWN ’71
In Edge of Destiny, two star-crossed high school graduates, Claudia and Theo, discover each other on the eve of the Second World War. Facing their inevitable breakup, they make the most of their time together, from the tobacco farms, fields and meadows of Norfolk County to the streets, steam tunnels and grit of Toronto. Then a freakish event tears them apart and Theo disappears into the future, 80 years later: 2019. From his own years at Trinity, Brown created a fictitious Ewart College at the corner of Harbord and St. George. The UofT campus and Spadina Avenue are key features in the tale, and several Trinity staff members provided insights during the research phase for the novel. (Blurb)
