« A Rebellious Spirit | Main | A Rebellious Spirit: Daniel Tracey »

The Traceys are also part of my family, on my mother's side. I became interested in Daniel Tracey because this hapless fellow, an Irish farmer caught up in the famine of 1815, migrated with his family to find a better life in Canada, only to find himself caught up in the political strugges of Lower Canada and gets involved in the Patriote wars, the 1837 Rebellion. There's never a dull moment in this book, as you follow the stories of all the members of this family who link up with the movers and shakers in the high circles of the old Quebec and Ontario governments.

As an author of several Canadian historical fiction e-books, I never tire of exploring the historical narrative of our common heritage here in the northern part of North America. It's been said often that Canadian history is boring, but everything I've seen confirms that it is anything but boring. My greatest ambition is to make Canadian history accessible to those who are curious about it in a way that enriches the stories of the past by bringing the timeline and facts to life with real characters. CELEBRATING 150 YEARS SINCE CANADA BEGAN!
