  • Louisa’s Journey - England to Canada in 1913 on June 22, 2014
    (no rating)
    What an inspiring story! The author brings Louisa to life in a way that makes you wish that you had had the privilege to know the courageous woman yourself. Also nice to be taken back to a time in history that so few of us know much about. Highly recommend this book!
