by Florence Sage

A collection of linked vignettes, the stories in this delightful memoir follow the history of an immigrant Polish family from the perspective of their daughter as she comes of age. Told through the medium of narrative verse, these lyrical pieces engage the reader, who will come to understand why the father whistled and for what the woman wished.
While these stories centre on Hamilton as a post-war industrial city in southern Ontario, they speak to universal experiences of immigrants and families.
