This book is about two families emigrating from Ireland to the Ottawa River Valley in the 1800s. It’s a fictionalized account of this history after the author did years of genealogical research, including some at Cloverdale Library.
I found the book to be well written and charming. It was a fascinating and personal story of a historical Canadian experience. (Submitted by Kristen).
