In the fall of 1939, Grace Baker’s three brothers board Canadian ships headed for war. Grace stays behind, tending to the homefront and the general store that helps keep her small Nova Scotian community running. Three years later, the fighting rages on, and rumors swirl about “wolf packs” of German U-Boats lurking in the waters along the shores of East Jeddore. One day, a handsome stranger ventures into the store, claiming to be a trapper, and Grace becomes enamored. But after several weeks, she discovers that her mysterious visitor is not the lonely outsider he appears to be.
Great Canadian Author!

Thought it would be nice to hear a story about my home
I haven’t been back in years and the title of this book caught my attention right away.
Story was basic; a bit unsophisticated
Was disappointed to find out there was not a trace of the way people actually talk in that area, which is unique to the east coast; some places thicker than others.

Written for children I suspect
Unsophisticated plot. Not much to keep my interest.
Performance: Was like listening to the news; very disconnected and factual and uninvested in the story
The content was a repetitive public service announcement for wearing your seatbelt, helmets, and not texting while driving.. I am surprised that drinking and driving wasnt rolled into the story along with ‘just say no to drugs.’
The book was dedicated to her kids so I think it was written with messages geared toward them.
