The Globe and Mail

“...[an] exquisitely honed novel….”
– Starred Review, Publisher’s Weekly

“This fascinating tribute…is an excellent snapshot of the life of a foundling…. It is this personal connection to the history that makes Jocelyn’s book resonate with the reader. Her research is heartfelt and it shows in her work.”
