Just Call Me Eva: The Story of an Uncommon Woman

Передня обкладинка
GeneralStore PublishingHouse, 2007 - 238 стор.
For half a century, Eva Kennedy was at the centre of things in the small eastern Ontario village of Cumberland, while raising a family of six, assisting her husband who was the township clerk, and running a private maternity hospital. And in writing, she found some solace for the fears that accompanied her sons to war, and contentment as her children made their own way in a brave new world. Her diaries and letters, annotated by her daughter, offer a remarkable insight into an extraordinary age.
