Description

Tiny Burlington, tucked away on the slopes of Nova Scotia's North Mountain. In 1904 it was home to hardworking farmers, complicated family dynamics, passionate lovers, and a murderer.

Laura Churchill Duke's carefully-researched tale brings to life the shocking events that ended a life and changed a community.

Wendy Robicheau, archivist at Acadia University: "As I read the book and the details spoke to my imagination, I needed to visit the sites--to be in the spaces and fill my senses. I love it when words on a page come alive, compelling me to acknowledge our ancestors. Thank you, Laura, for telling our herstories."

Theresa McAuley Robinson's memory was almost obliterated for a hundred years. Laura Churchill Duke can be thanked for helping to preserve the mystery around Theresa and her fate. From tiny, tucked-away Burlington, Kings County, N.S., Theresa represents many innocent women. Churchill Duke tells an exciting story that allows someone who might be termed an exemplary farmwife and mother to represent so many women then and now.
