Based on a true story. From the sophistication and glamour of upper-class New York City life during the roaring twenties, Erie Carliss travels to the rural Mennonite country in Wellington County, Ontario to discover her secret past. In the search for answers, Erie finds herself in the middle of a power struggle among whiskey runners and gangsters. The new friendships and rekindled interests of old acquaintances blossom. This is an exciting and moving story of a young woman coming to terms with her heritage and making a choice between the life she was raised in and a life she was born into.

About the Author
Pat Mestern

Pat Mestern has always called the Upper Grand River Valley in southern Ontario home. The combination of its beautiful natural heritage and multi-cultural diversity - the Scots, Irish, English, German, Mennonite and Amish settled this vibrant area - plays a major role in forming the characterizations and settings for her works of historical fiction that are set in Canada. Traveling and writing provide her with endless ideas for scenarios, time periods and characters for those works of fiction that are set "away". She credits her upbringing, surrounded by books, music, good conversation and encouragement from family for her love of history, and the ability to write.
