This is definitely a timeless classic. Like her friend, Lucy Maud Montgomery, Marian Keith writes about early Canadian life and its simple beauty. The descriptive passages are outstanding and I feel like I'm standing with the main character overlooking Lake Oro or Lake Simcoe or his beloved silver maple tree, strong and true. Very Canadian indeed. Well done! This author needs to be re-instated; her books should be reprinted for all to enjoy. She makes rural Ontario sound as quaint and endearing as Montgomery did with Prince Edward Island. Reviewed by Emily-Jane Hills Orford, the award-winning author of "The Whistling Bishop".
