Product Description

Review

Well researched and readable as a novel. It will delight everyone concerned with English upper-class life in the age of the Prince Regent or with the troubled rise of pioneer Ontario.



The diaries, letters, and sketches of Elizabeth Simcoe are drawn upon as sources in this portrayal of the energetic and remarkable woman who came to Upper Canada with her husband when he was appointed lieutenant governor.

She has written a trilogy on the Simcoe family: Elizabeth Posthuma Simcoe: A Biography, Our Young Soldier: Lieutenant Francis Simcoe, 6 June 1791-6 April 1812, and John Graves Simcoe: 1752-186, A Biography.
