Review: SILVER THREADS by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch

Back to Books recently read and reviewed Silver Threads by Marsha Forchuk Skrypuch for the WWI Reading Challenge in 2012.  Here’s an excerpt:

This is a picture book suited to the elementary grades and based on the true story of the author’s grandfather, George Forchuk, who was sent to a Ukrainian internment camp for the duration of WWI as a Canadian immigrant from the Ukraine.  The story is a tender one of love and hope as the wife waits year after year for her husband to return to her as he promised, to spend another Christmas with her yet.
