    A very readable book, the story never drags. The author does a very good job of depicting the issues so you can see it from both sides. Suitable for those interested in the topic of race and racism. As relevant today as in the times it was set in. Highly recommended.

    I was totally immersed in this book. The characters were very real to me and I much appreciated the description of life in Newfoundland and in Windsor. It made me realize how little I did know about Canada and black history, as well as the contributions and sacrifices that had to be made during WWII. Gave me a new perspective on our country and made me want to meet the characters in real life.... The best canadian book I have read in a long time.

    Emancipation Day

    Well written with good character development. I'm sure this book is racially accurate for its day. Loved the ending with a twist at the very end.
