As a Victoria short story writer and playwriter, Louise Young published her first novel, Icarus (Thomas Allen, 2002) about a young Albertan's search for the Lost Lemon Mine in the Rockies after he finds a treasure map inside a Bible in a used bookstore. The protagonist is accompanied by his two brothers, two other men and three women. Their quest becomes increasingly fantastical.
