Kathleen felt as miserable as the weather. A voice inside told her it would be impossible for her to marry this Canadian; it was far too risky. So, she had to just let him slip away.

Now you can read the whole, compelling story of what happened to Jack and Kathleen in a new paperback, Kathleen’s Cariole Ride: A True Love Story from over the Ocean and in the Bush after World War 1.
