Selected as one of the best books of the year by Maclean’s and the Globe and Mail

“Richly detailed, clear-eyed and passionately engaged with the history of the ‘other’ Europe, Bloodlines also gives us a deeply moving account of what it is to be a hyphenated Canadian for whom the history and community of blood relations extend insistently from old world to new.” Janice Kulyk Keefer, author of Honey and Ashes: A Memoir
