Another Place at the Table


In 1911, thirteen-year-old Mabel Ernestine Lapointe ran from the heartache of her life in an Ottawa tenement house and set off on a journey that took her to the giddy heights of New York City. Tragic circumstances forced her return to Canada, to a desolate farm in Renfrew County during the Depression years—a place from which she longed to escape. Another Place at the Table is Mabel’s story and the story of the farmer who became her husband, and offered the young widow and her two children the only sanctuary they could hope for.

This is former CBC radio broadcaster, author and storyteller Mary (Haneman) Cook’s tribute to the remarkable woman who was her mother.
