Susanna's Quill free pdf Shortlisted for the 2005 Young Adult Canadian Book Award
Susanna's Quill is a work of historical fiction based on the life of Susanna Moodie, writer and pioneer, by award-winning author Julie Johnston. The story takes us into Susanna's genteel English childhood, through her humorous teenage attempts at writing, growing to her burgeoning independence, marriage to Dunbar Moodie, and their decision to emigrate from England. To the Moodies, Canada was the answer to their prayers. They would have the life they could no longer afford in Britain and they could raise their children to become wealthy landowners in their own right.
The adventures that thwart this dream become a story of lost illusions and a found sense of self-reliance and inner strength.
