Eleanora’s Diary The Journals of a Canadian Pioneer Girl
Eleanora’s Diary: The Journals of a Canadian Pioneer Girl by Caroline Parry
Think of it, a ten-year old middle child in a big emigrant family from England began a diary in 1833, and her genuine record of life almost 200 years ago has survived! This journal is the Real Thing, enhanced with illustrations, fine art and historical photos!
Eleanora Hallen pens her copybook sentences or doodles, both thoughtful and silly. Sometimes a merry or opinionated reporter; other times simply a reflective voice revealing a great deal about her world, she starts in the old country, crosses the ocean, and roots into Upper Canada.
Author Caroline Parry has carefully interwoven her own voice – covering in particular the year 1835, when Reverend George Hallen, an Anglican clergyman from Worcestershire, his wife and ten surviving children set sail across the Atlantic, travelled up the Hudson, and into what today is Ontario’s Simcoe County.
Enjoy travelling back in time through this unique account of early settlements – treasure Eleanora’s insights in the happenings of each day!
