In the dead-end Canadian town of Bleak Landing, twelve-year-old Irish immigrant Bridget O'Sullivan lives in a ramshackle house and dreams of another life, even as the Great Depression rages. Routinely beaten by her father and bullied by schoolmate Victor Harrison, the waifish yet fiery redhead vows to run away and never return. Just a few short years later, run she does - fleeing the unspeakable repercussions of her father's gambling. In Winnipeg, Bridget lands a job at a garment factory, the first step on her journey to shed her past and begin anew.

I have enjoyed all of Terry Todd's 3 audio books, and this one is no different! Her writing is beautiful and meaningful, focusing on women in Canada during WWII. I loved this book so much, and will recommend it to everyone. I think Terrie is now one of my favorite authors, and I anxiously await another story from her.

In 1942, telegrams always bring life-altering and tragic news in a war-hardened world - and the one Maggie Marshall receives is no different. But running a restaurant with the help of only pregnant, unwed girls has taught her to be tough. Maggie's no weeping widow, but Charlotte Penfield thinks she's the most unfeeling woman on earth. Seventeen, exiled by her wealthy parents, and working in the restaurant, fanciful Charlotte runs away with romantic notions of a reunion with her baby's father at his military camp.

I've never heard of this author before, but this book is an absolute treasure. So beautifully written. It will leave a lasting impression on your heart! The audiobook is very well narrated. I will be looking up other books by both this author and this narrator.
