ISBN: 0006392830 Global Overview for this book
1 journaler for this copy...
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!
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.
