Avatar for EmilyEm EmilyEm said:
A Nova Scotia man joins Canadian troops headed to the Great War, promised with his sailing, artistic and navigation skills he’ll be a cartographer. On the home front his son Simon watches the war and its effects on his family and neighbors. Duffy has written a wonderful story that appealed to me on many levels. The mystery of brother-in-law Ebbin, thought missing in action, gives the narrative page-turning intensity. But, Simon’s coming-of-age age story, particularly as he confronts the prejudice against his German heritage teacher is touching. And, the widow and son where Angus billets behind the lines gives the story both humor and pathos. Good first effort from this Minnesota writer.
