Making It Home
by Alison DeLory • 318 pages
TACKLING CAPE BRETON, ALBERTA, SYRIA, AND TURKEY, new novelist Alison DeLory puts together a cast of characters as real as our neighbours or the day’s headlines.
A Cape Breton grandfather thinks that, if he holds on tightly enough, his family, his tiny community, and his own world will stay exactly the way they have always been. But his family has grown branches in Alberta and Toronto. And the desperate circumstances of war have sent another family fleeing across the world, looking to find—or create—home.
A timely novel about people who are forced to grow—as are we all!
