  1. I love this book. My review: An excellent collection of short stories based on a terrible disaster. The Halifax explosion as related by various fictional characters is a must-read for those interested in historical events. It is hard to imagine witnessing the carnage. This collection does a good job of describing the thoughts and feelings of survivors, as well as the gruesome details of one of the most horrific events in Canada’s history from a personal perspective.


    • Darlene, thank you for sharing your thoughts on this book. I can’t recall the first time I heard about the Explosion that changed and shaped the lives of those in Nova Scotia. I was young; that I know. The first story was of my grandfather returning from overseas after the First World War and arriving to the mess of the aftermath. While he continued on to his home in Newfoundland, his brother remained in Halifax to live out his life. This collection holds a special place in my heart, knowing some aspects of my life–as I was born and lived my early life across the harbour from Halifax–are a direct result of that disaster.
