The True Story of A Young Love That Tore A Family ApartBook - 2015
When Harry Carey fired a shotgun at an unknown car that had been repeatedly trespassing on his rural property, he unwittingly triggered a series of events that would land him in jail and blow his family apart. CareyOn is the true story of the Carey family, who swapped their suburban home in Toronto for a hobby farm near Orangeville, Ontario in 1975. Told from the point of view of two teenage sisters, Cindy and Natalie Carey, CareyOn witnesses the unravelling of the family in the wake of Natalie’s premature departure, and explores the impact of being abandoned. Written with warmth, humour, and compassion, it is the story of first love, of coping and carrying on in the face of loss, the strength of a family bond that pulls one of its members back home, and ultimately, the power of a family’s love ... to forgive.
