Editorial Review

"A lovingly crafted work, so engaging, pulsing with life, sensitive to the foibles of family relationships. I love the wry humour, gentle handling of tragedy, of constrained family competition, of church, and of politics. The Innocent is a wonderful study of social relationships in a small community. I'm much touched by the chapter on starting school, and the quiet, non critical intervention of Uncle James to still the child's fears when passing the Iron Works Repair Shop. It would rival any of James Rainey's small town tales."--Ruth Redelmeier, Ontario Historian
