More About the Author

Carolyn Gossage was born and grew up in Toronto. As an only child, the allure of books and writing claimed her as an early victim. After studying French and German, she spent a year at the Sorbonne in Paris, before returning to Toronto to teach English and History at Canada's National Ballet School. Her first book " A Question of Privilege: Canada's Independent Schools" was released in 1977. In 1979 she became a member of the fledgling Writers' Union of Canada. While continuing to write, she began working on various film productions, including "Road to Avonlea".
In 2006 "Forgotten Graces - The Travel Sketchbooks of a Victorian Gentlewoman" was published in conjunction with an exhibition at The Varley Gallery. Gossage's translation from German of the 600-year history of the Frankfurt Book Fair was launched in Frankfurt in 2007 & two years later, "Auf Irrfahrt" - the German translation of "The Accidental Captives: The Story of Seven Women Alone in Nazi Germany" was released by Christoph Links Verlag, Berlin. The original English version was published by I. B. Tauris of London in 2011 and Dundurn Press, Toronto in 2012.

Format: Hardcover
There is a huge collection of Ethiopian Icons, starting from the 15th century. They are wonderfully illustrated and described. You'll learn a lot about this ancient christian country and it's history!
