"This little volume is a wonderful excursion through our local settlement history. With a deft hand Pat Kortland weaves a story that gives us a sense of the complexity and emotional stamina needed by our forbearers to leave the "old countries" and reinvent their lives in the frontier of 1800's Canada. At the same time she touches upon the actual sites and events of historical significance that were pivotal in the day. I felt humbled by the bravery and strength of the main characters Maeve and her father Colm. Despite much tragedy and hard work they persevere in the end to become the pillars of our early Upper Canadian society. Inspiring and gratifying to be reminded of the "Great People" of our past." - Robert Burcher, Author and Historian (from back cover).
