About this title


This historical novel tells the tale of the people of Halifax who did not lose their Nova Scotian humour in the long, exhausting days that followed their city's darkest hour.

About the Author:

One of the youngest of eight children, Catherine learned to read and write before her fourth birthday. She did so even though born hard-of-hearing, a challenge all her life. The family was in Halifax the day their world exploded. In the years that followed the horror, with no radios or televisions, they gathered around the fireplace winter and summer remembering and embellishing the personal memories and the tales told by others. Catherine remembers learning a great deal beyond her years from those evenings.

Much later, Catherine won a scholarship into Art School. However, when her father died in 1931, Catherine took a nursing course and nursed the poor during those grim years. In 1935 she returned home to Montreal to marry and to attend University with her husband, studying sociology and psychology.

In 1960 Catherine moved to Toronto to allow her four children to go to university there. It was here that Catherine began to spend long hours studying the events of that fateful Halifax day still vivid from her childhood years. Having survived cancer at 55, Catherine was determined to set down the experience of her community. She read everything available, searched the archives of daily newspapers for that dramatic year and wrote the stories her family had retold and retold. After completing a degree in English and History at the University of Toronto, she continued to write and revise. Now in her 90's after three heart attacks, Catherine has decided it is time to finish her work and publish it for all to read.
