Susanna’s Quill is the touching story of the life of a well-to-do English woman who emigrated to Canada in the 1800’s. Full of hardships and strife, her story is one to be admired.

Julie Johnston has written an amazing account of the life of Susanna Moodie. The story is true, and Susanna’s adventures are brought to life with vivid detail and imagery. I learned many interesting facts about life in Canada at that time.

I would definitely recommend this biography to any avid reader over the age of thirteen, who is looking for a page-turning novel with an edge of seriousness.
