Fixing Up the Farmhouse

Dianne Hicks Morrow

Fixing Up the Farmhouse by Dianne Hicks MorrowWhen Dianne Morrow and her husband, Andy, first saw the ramshackle old farmhouse, they fell in love. What they didn't see was the years of work it would take to make the old house a home. Morrow describes, through essays, journal entries and poetry, the triumphs and the challenges of rebuilding a cozy farmhouse - and nurturing a growing brood of kids and animals. Often humourous, sometimes sad, this is the story of building a home, and a life under the Lindens.

This Navy Doctor Came Ashore

Charles Read

This Navy Doctor Came Ashore by Charles ReadDr. Read entered the Royal Canadian Navy in 1943 and worked for three years as a flight surgeon. When the war was winding down, he realized that his career as a flight surgeon was also over. But he remembered how much he had enjoyed the three weeks he spent in Charlottetown when he relieved the medical officer at HMCS Queen Charlotte. This city of 20,000, in which this landship was 'moored', was much to his liking partly because he had grown up in Amherst, Nova Scotia, just across the Northumberland Strait, where he thought the culture was very similar. He also knew that as the only medical...

Prometheus Reconsiders Fire

Brent MacLaine

Prometheus Reconsiders Fire by Brent MacLaineIn his new collection of poems, Prometheus Reconsiders Fire, PEI poet Brent MacLaine undertakes an exploration of fire. The prefatory title poem establishes Prometheus as the poet's persona, a voice that is dedicated to the reconsideration of fire in both its benevolent and malevolent aspects. Formal and elegant, Prometheus plots a trajectory between the classical and the local, a bearing that will be familiar to readers of MacLaine's earlier work Athena Becomes a Swallow. Wide-ranging in its geography, the new book is wrapped 'round by "The Fire Hall Suite" that begins and ends the book. These...
