Praise for Dear Canada: Pieces of the Past
"Once you start reading it you can't put it down." -The National Post (Diana Brimbecom, age 10)
"Matas's book is a moving work of historical fiction." -Jewish Tribune
"Historical fiction may tell of the past - but for prolific novelist Carol Matas, it must be applicable to the present. That's why it's important for school-age students to encounter such stories as her newest novel for young people, Pieces of the Past: the Holocaust Diary of Rose Rabinowitz." -The Winnipeg Free Press
"[Pieces of the Past is] a work of art that is sure to resonate with an older audience as well as a teenaged one. The prose is crisp and well constructed, the dialogue is authentic, and she demonstrates a willingness to delve into sometimes painful subjects." -The Jewish Post and News
"This is a powerful, deeply affecting book . . . an outstanding addition to the series, and I recommend it highly." -Resource Links
