Product Description

Product Description

In 1911, Flora Nicholson of Richmond, Quebec, a 'good' girl in every respect, is coming of age, about to enter Teachers College and settle into a respectable profession just as the militant suffragettes in Britain are embarking on a fiery campaign of civil disobedience.

Indeed, Winston Churchill, as Home Secretary enemy No. 1 of said suffragettes, wrote in his 1911 diary: "Everything these days seems to be changing."

Threshold Girl paints a 360 degree picture of this pivotal 1910 era, but in Canada.

The book is based on real family letters, a full 300 of them, and embellished with excerpts from the historical record.

As such, Threshold Girl is an ideal social studies resource for high schools.
