Canada: Brave New World
Canada: Brave New World is an anthology full of immigrant stories of people coming to Canada to escape conditions in their birth country and what their unbelievable contributions have meant to Canada. This is a collection of personal stories from many different families; it shows once again the amazing ability people have to rise above their circumstances in order to not only survive but to thrive. The anthology is a celebration of what we humans can and will do when faced with extreme adversity.
Maggie is an engrossing true story set in the early 1900s, against the historical backdrop of WWI-era Canada. It features warm-hearted glimpses of life in a large ‘Pennsylvania Dutch’ family, as well as shocking revelations that Maggie’s husband wasn’t the man she thought he was. Author Elaine Cougler unearthed this tale twenty-five years after her mother, Alice Garner’s, death, and she masterfully preserves her mother’s voice, offering readers a relatable and enjoyable glimpse into the past.
The Loyalist Trilogy
The Loyalist Trilogy delves into American and Canadian history with two generations of the Garner family during the times of the American Revolutionary War, the War of 1812 and the Rebellion of 1837. John goes off to fight for the King and leaves Lucy behind to try to hold on to their land in the midst of war-torn New York State. Later their sons have to choose sides to survive in the wilderness that was Upper Canada.
Young Lucinda Harper and her father are taking a late-night walk on Boston’s Long Wharf when disguised men run past their hiding place, jump into small boats, and rush out to the Dartmouth anchored in the harbour.
