Quite an Undertaking April 9 2002
By Melanie Stokes - Published on
I thought this book was amazing! Imagine a widow with five little kids trying to make it on her own and having to work as an Undertaker! She is an inspiration to me. I really couldn't put this book down until it was finished.

Fantastic, true life story Dec 11 2004
By Rob Scott - Published on
A very compelling and wonderful story or a strong Canadian woman's life as a the first female funeral director. Interesting and entertaining. We're sure to see this story put to film in the future.

Excellent Oct. 4 2012

I know a cousin of this woman and she was telling me about her. She knew the whole family of Guymer's personally and her own family is mentioned in this book. So when I read it I really enjoyed it. Mrs. Guymer lived in a time we just can't imagine in our day of ease and luxury. She had a backbone of steel and held her own in an unliberated world. I am happy to have read about her.
