Here are a few excerpts from my upcoming novel, Out of the Beauce, a story of inner strength and determination as a poor grain farmer struggles with the loss of his spouse. His children are removed from the farmhouse and a deep depression overtakes him.
How to get his children back? Like many men, he could go north, strike out for the gold fields of the Yukon. All is at risk: his children, his farm, the land that he loves.
The farmer leaves with his younger brother to search for glitter in the gold fields of Dawson as many men from his village have done in the past. Some men have returned from the difficult and long journey but many have not.
I hope you enjoy.
