Greta Enns was born in Russia in September, 1902 in a time of soon-to-be-shaken peace and prosperity. This is Book One of her story, as true as fiction can recreate it, as factually accurate as word-of-mouth accounts can shape it, woven with care out of personal interviews, diaries, journals, and letters.

About the author

Contributor Notes

Hedy Leonora Martens is a marriage and family therapist living in Winnipeg. A child of immigrant parents, she grew up in Saskatchewan spinning fantasies which she shared with her younger siblings and now shares with her grandchildren. As an adult, she has continued writing stories, poems, articles, and dramas, including the federal government report An Eco-Systemic Approach to Family Violence and Related Recidivism; a children’s story, No One To Talk To; and a series of talks, Myths We Live and Die By. In Favoured among Women, her first novel, she integrates her love of story, her gratitude to be a Canadian, her concern for victims of trauma (whether refugees from perilous homes or pitiless regimes), and her deep belief that love and faith can accomplish more than coercion and violence.
