This book is so good! I love it! It truly expresses what an immigrant has to go through to go to another country(Canada) And having lost another relative in your old country(Horoshova,Borshiv county, in the Crownland of Galicia)in 1914.It also shows how it feels like to be held hostage at an Internment camp just because Canada is fighting against your country in war.And being really poor the whole time! It shows the sacrifices children have to make like going to work instead of going to school.I highly recommend this book to whoever reads this comment and thinks it sounds like a good book and whoever likes reading about the old times. I think this book is awesome and I would totally read this book again and again if I have too!:)
