    I love this series, written by my former Faculty of Education English professor Set in Upper Canada in the early 18th century, Don Gutteridge brings his characters and the time to life Great historical fiction I m happy to hear that the fourth book in the series,Dubious Allegiance, is scheduled to come out this summer.
