About the Book

What appeal is there traveling to a land that, in her mind, is associated with death?

  1. Living in the rugged, rocky and forested British North American wilderness, Claire Appleton knows nothing but an arduous life filled with hard work, struggle and sacrifice. In her entire lifetime, she hasn’t traveled more than a few miles from her hometown of Fredericton.

Claire’s husband, Harold, dreams of adventure and suggests a move to the Niagara Peninsula in search of a better life, a suggestion Claire resists.  Despite the hardships, she is happy, and the Niagara Peninsula reminds Claire of her father’s death during the War of 1812.

Claire’s mind, however, is changed when her drunken father-in-law threatens to the kill her family.  Getting away from him is the best thing they could do, but a journey of 900 miles isn’t without risk.  Many aspects on their perilous journey could go wrong– bad weather, illness, injury, theft, running out of money, lack of roads, wild animals.

Will the Appletons’ journey of hope end safely?  Will their they achieve the promise of a better life?
