"This touching book centers on two people who pursue careers as journalists after World War I. For David Driscoll, the chaos at war's end provides him with the ideal story with which to win his own column. He writes a series of articles on the plight of the Armenians, focusing on a young girl in an orphanage, Josephina Gregorian, who dreams of becoming a writer. When a relative then living in the U.S. reads about her, after much study and hard work, she gets a job at the newspaper at which David works. While Jo's writing shows great promise, David's career suffers. What follows ia sensitive character study of an aging reporter unable to cope with the new style of journalism that was then developing."

  Emerald's Hope

    "I found this book to be a great read! Truly one of the epic romances. I enjoyed the Irish background and historical events. Emerald is a rich, full character. I rode the waves of emotion with her. Try it snuggled on the couch one night. You won't be able to put it down."

  The Story of Canada, Book 5 - Victoria

    Victoria, the fifth and concluding volume of Dennis Adair and Janet Rosenstock's series The Story of Canada, delivers all one has come to expect from this series (and from Robert Wall's The Canadians): lots of action, travel, adventure, passion, and violence set against an accurate, but not too obtrusive historical background.

    "This volume takes place in the years 1855 to 1857 and is set primarily in the Pacific Northwest. Victoria, under James Douglas, is the focal point of the story, although much of the action does not take place there.

    "The intertwining paths of four people are traced in Victoria until they all finally meet in the conclusion. One of these stories involves Margot MacLeod, great-great-granddaughter of Janet Cameron MacLeod of Kanata (Book 1 of The Story of Canada). The plot moves quickly enough to gloss over any improbabilities that might occur. The characters are attractive, if not very deep, and the hardships of life at the time are certainly not dwelled upon.

    "Victoria is recommended to libraries where earlier volumes of the series are popular. It could also be read without any prior acquaintance with the series, and, therefore, could be bought by any library needing more popular, Canadian historical fiction. "
