Kate's Ring

Thirteen-year-old Kate takes on the responsibility to try to keep her embattled family going. It's Kate who thinks she can get her parents, her brothers and sisters through heartbreak and tragedy.

Set in a hardscrabble East Coast town in the 1920's, Donna Grassby's novel paints a vivid portrait of people in crisis, exploring issues as relevant today as they were then. The resolution leans as much on hope as it does on family.

The Birdman

He walked the plantation fields, freely and with the owners' permission. He was an ornithologist after all, touring the Deep South of the 1850s to study the birds. But Alexander Milton Ross was no ordinary birdman. He was an undercover Abolitionist. And he had news to spread about the Underground Railroad.

Discover the forgotten life and true adventures of Alexander Milton Ross, daring Canadian activist, who risked everything — including his life — to help bring freedom and dignity to the heroic men and women enslaved in the American South.

The Garden

Fifteen-year-old Elias and his family are caught in the middle of an international conflict — the deadly crossfire between the Syrian Army and government-opposed Rebels. He then suffers the indignities of a refugee camp.

Eventually Elias finds himself a newcomer in North America where he comes face to face with completely new battles — culture shock, racism, and bullying.

Inspired by the stories of her newcomer students and their families, The Garden is a poignant yet inspiring young adult novel that sheds light on the social impact of modern military conflict.
