Description:

This book tells the life story of Katherine Everett. She tells of her unhappy childhood in Ireland and her move from one relative’s home to another as she tried to avoid having to go back to her abusive mother. We meet some of these interesting people as the author saw them, with the quirky Aunt Aurelia turning up a number of times during the narrative. Katherine became a building contractor to support herself and her two sons, an unusual occupation for a woman at the time, and also spent time as a nurse and a lady’s companion. There is an especially interesting tale of her somewhat harrowing bicycle ride through territory held by the Irish rebel army. She also talks about various places she lived or visited including British Columbia, England and Italy. An intriguing and well written story.--Mardi Desjardins. [Suggest a different description.]
