In the year 1907, all of Brampton is present at the sod-turning ceremony for the Carnegie Library. At the end of the event, the crowd rises as one to walk to the Presbyterian Church for a consecration service... Everyone except Jessie Stephens and her family. Her father will not allow them to enter the Presbyterian Church. No one will tell young Jessie the reason, but she learns that it has something to do with her grandfather Jesse Brady, who built it. As she seeks to solve that mystery over many years, Jessie slowly begins to learn the history of the town in which she lives. Her tales of everyday life in small town Ontario combine to craft a vivid portrait of a life and a family that are, upon closer inspection, anything but ordinary.
Lynne Golding grew up in Brampton, ON, where she lives today. She obtained a BA in History and Political Science before studying law. She is now a senior partner at an international law firm, married with children, and the winner of the What's Your Story Short Prose and Poetry Competition.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Historical Brampton I would highly recommend this book especially if you grew up in the Brampton area. Being a Brampton person I recognize places and names which brings history to life for me. I am looking forward to reading the next books. A great Canadian read by a Brampton author!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Canadian Historical Fiction I am not generally a fan of historical fiction, but.... this book is meticulously researched so I knew the facts were correct. More importantly (to me), the story is charming and a very enjoyable read. I can't wait for the next installments so I can learn the mystery of why they can't enter that certain church. A great Canadian read...oh, really a great read for anyone.
