The Editor's Corner


I have been reading The Brother Keepers, a new historical novel by John E. (Ted) MacNintch

[see the two articles in this Newsletter], about the experiences of three Canadian brothers in WWI,

descendants of Clan MacInnes, who were born and raised in Nova Scotia, in the maritime provinces.


I started the book with a little knowledge of Canada today, almost no knowledge of their history,

and almost no information about individual events of WWI in Europe. It has been very interesting

(almost like good science fiction, where the author has to set the scenes, develop the characters, and

explain all of the local rules and customs, everywhere the story goes).


The book is a historical war novel, not a genealogy book. Ted has researched the subjects very well,

and included quite a few maps, and a lot of background information in the book (the maps are very

useful, and I find myself referring to them constantly, as the people move on to the next location).
