In 1911, a thirteen-year-old Mabel Ernestine Lapointe ran from the heartache of her life in an Ottawa tenement house, and set off on a journey that took her to the giddy heights of New York City. Tragic circumstances forced her return to Canada, to a desolate farm in Renfrew County during the Depression years- a place from which she longed to escape. Another Place at the Table is Mabel's story and the story of the farmer who became her husband, offering the young widow and her two children the only sanctuary they could hope for.
This is CBC radio broadcaster, author and storyteller Mary Cook's tribute to the remarkable woman who was her mother.
