"Overall this is a pleasant story, with a unique setting that will introduce students to a chapter of Canadian history in a rural community."

(Gillian Richardson Resource Links 2002-02-01)

"Gold's tender storytelling and careful research make this work enjoyable and educational."

(Howard Bokser Concordia University Magazine 2002-06-01)
