Description

A holiday treat for fans of the Dear Canada Series, and all lovers of historical fiction!

Sometimes starting over is the best way to move forward, even at Christmastime. When the North West Resistance broke out, Josephine's family sided with Louis Riel. But the Métis forces that fought at Batoche faced yet more challenges after the battle itself. The Bouviers and others who decided to stay have been struggling to survive, and still they do not hold Title to their land.

This short story was originally published in Dear Canada: A Christmas to Remember, a collection featuring many of Canada's top writers for children, including Jean Little, Sarah Ellis, Carol Matas, and more. New readers will adore this stand-alone holiday tale, while fans of the Series will recognize the voice of Josephine, whom they first met in the popular Dear Canada book Blood Upon Our Land.

Collect all 12 Dear Canada Christmas stories this season and enjoy a very happy holiday!

About the author

In 1974 she became a Canadian citizen. She is a graduate of the University of Western Ontario.Maxine spent 31 years working as an educator in elementary classrooms, guiding children toward literacy. The students in her class, who of course thought of her only as their teacher, saw each step in the creation of a new work. They heard the unillustrated story, saw the roughs, and were the first to view the finished book.Maxine lives with her husband William and their two Yorkies, Ceilidh and Moon. They divide their year between Port Stanley, Ontario on Lake Erie, and Newman s Cove, Newfoundland, overlooking the Atlantic Ocean. Both are wonderful places to write.
