Forlagets beskrivelse

This revealing and heartfelt memoir explores the lives of the early Russian Doukhobor women and men who worked and farmed in Canada, and saw their children forcibly removed and sent to residential schools in hopes of assimilating them. It also tells the story of one contemporary woman who finds herself drawn to nursing in some of Canada’s most remote and isolated Indigenous Arctic communities. Through her eyes, we explore Indigenous cultural practices of dancing, drumming, games, sacred retreats and sweat lodge ceremonies. Through her words, we learn of the interesting parallels between elderly Russian women and Canadian Indigenous elder women. And from her heart, we learn of her journey of self-discovery when one son is diagnosed with autism and her beloved aging mother develops chronic health problems and dementia. Ultimately, the author unlocks her personal creative vision and art and finds that home is within her – it is wherever she is. This is a memoir about love, compassion, humour, respect, discovery, grief and blossoming.
