Description

Beyond the Journey features the voices of women who have experienced moving from somewhere else to live in Canada. Some women were brought to Canada as children, while others emigrated as adults; yet others were born in Canada to immigrant parents. The women chronicle their journey of settlement in Canada through life-writing and essays. In all instances, they focus on reaching for a sense of belonging in Canada as they engaged in community building. This required transcending their “immigrantness” to create that new reality. While the end result is gratifying, the journey required adapting to the culture shock, alienation, and loss of identity that are inevitably part of the immigrant’s experience.The contributors are from Albania, Antigua, Barbados, Germany, Grenada, India, Iran, and Jamaica.Catherine Bain • Gabriele Hardt • Rev.
