Journal Entry 1 by JessicaEby from Cambridge, Ontario Canada on Monday, August 28, 2017
My husband and I just came home from a two-week roadtrip across Western Canada, and this book came home with us! I bought it at a charity shop in Regina, Saskatchewan on the drive west; started reading it in a gas station parking lot in Morse, Saskatchewan while my husband napped; read a little more at the Bessborough Hotel in Saskatoon; and now have it back at home with me in Cambridge, Ontario. I was unfamiliar with this book when I saw it in the store, but have enjoyed the first little bit and look forward to reading more of it.

In celebration of the sesquicentennial, I have dedicated my 2017 bookcrossing activity to the reading and sharing of Canadian stories. I am registering this book as part of my Canada 150 project!

I have been home sick for a couple of days, and it has given me an opportunity to catch up on some unfinished books! I still have a ton of stuff to read around here, but I am glad to have had the chance to read the rest of Lesia's Dream.

While in many ways this story is sad, it's also a good story of strength and determination... and I was happy that it pretty much ended as I wanted it to end! It is sad and shameful that the Ukrainians were treated as they were in the early 1900s, but I for one am glad that they were tenacious enough to stay and make continue making their valuable and beautiful contributions to our Canadian identity!

This is quite a beautifully written book, especially the parts that are supposed to be Lesia as an old woman, writing to her great-granddaughter. I don't really know yet when/where/how I will pass this book on, but I hope I'll be able to do so soon.

This book was released as part of a couple of Release Challenges here on bookcrossing-- the 2018 "Canada Days" Release Challenge and the 2018 "52 Towns in 52 Weeks" Release Challenge, in which Oakville was Town #21 for me!
