My Mother Married My Boyfriend
Extraordinary Tales of Everyday Canadians
by Dan Lundine
It's amazing what a person learns while leaning on a garden rake or the tailgate of a pickup…
Honest and real. No spit and polish. I found myself consistently inspired and amazed when reading these unfiltered and often incredible stories told by real Canadians. And what better way to discover who we really are than through the power of storytelling.
