    Forgiveness-a Gift from my Grandparents.

    This is an astounding interracial canadian story. Protoganists with loving hearts who were able to forgive great injustices and able to pass on their gifts through the generations. Aside from a few small literary glitches, this book is a must-read.

    Mixed

    The story of the grandparents was fascinating, riveting, historical and relevant. After that the book kind of got off track...lost its way. While the authors sad experience with his Mum was, well sad, it was a distraction from the grandparents experience. I found the second half of the book disappointing.

    You could see it coming

    Excellent , it will be close but this book should win Canada Reads. Normally sleep in but I had to getup at 6:30 am to finish it. I will need a couple of days before I can start a new book. Very good job of bringing two pieces of Canadian history that are rarely talked about and are generally smoothed over in schools and history books. As much as we need to forgive ,we must also remember what it is that we are forgiving.

    Absolutely Wonderful

    Absolutely an amazing read, totally was engaged in the storytelling, the family. I shared my astonishment at really not understanding Canada in WW II, the story is deep.

    Forgiveness

    Two branches of dark moments of Canadian history. How forgiveness allows us to carry on from even the most horrifying experiences.
