HEAL, S.C. Conceived in War, Born in Peace: Canada's Deep Sea Merchant Marine. Vancouver: Cordillera Pub., 1992. Pp (4),5-234,i-ii,(4). 8vo, red cardcovers. "Fifty and seventy-five years have elapsed since Canada and Canadians twice in this century turned to, with a huge will and sense of national purpose, and built a great fleet of ships to meet the challenges of war. Ships which proclaimed their origins with pride as they went about their business, sailing singly or in convoy, sometimes never to arrive at their next port of call, and wearing names which said all that needed to be said about their place of birth, or subsequent origins. Such names as Outremont Park, Fort Edmonton, Canadian Winner, City of Vancouver, Yarmouth County and Ottawa Pandora. The casualties to the ships were frequently accompanied with heavy loss of life, often but not always Canadian for these ships were built as part of our national contribution to an international war effort in times of great peril. These fleets both carried with them the hopes of Canadianbusiness, industry, politicians, and ordinary people in the street, whose sweat and tax dollars had been spent in profusion to achieve these results.Those hopes were that each fleet would create opportunities for long-term peacetime merchant shipping endeavours. To some extent the hopes were justified, but very few of the companies survive to-day. Instead what we have are memories and our imaginations to guide us. Picture the Fort Mumford whosetorpedo-shattered, coral-encrusted hull rests in deep water somewhere off a coral atoll in the Indian Ocean, or the Taber Park whose remains have likely long since sunk into the shifting sands of Britain's east coast. And then there is the City of Victoria, victim of the rocks in Hakodate Straits, and the Green Hill Park whose blazing hulk can still be pictured by many asit burned itself out against Siwash Rock, in Vancouver's Stanley Park." - from the rear cover.

Watters p.300, Laugher p.214, Rhodenizer p.986.

A novel of Nova Scotia by Hilda Kay Grant, a native of Yarmouth.

The town in the novel is named Inverness.
Chapter Two begins at the Glengarry Golf and Country Club which overlooks the Gut.

"This is a quiet, small-town comedy about life in a Nova Scotia community, with a nice galley of eccentric characters, some gentle irony, and really craftsmanlike construction. One of our readers has said, 'It is beguiling as an Alec Guiness film.' ".

The two nicely joined plots have to do with the struggle for social ascendancy between Simon Ward and his neighbor, two of the town's oldest inhabitants, and the attempt of Simon's daughter, who has had an unfortunate marriage, to work out a satisfactory relationship with 'the right young man.'

There are minor plots including the desperate search for a husband on the part of Simon's other daughter, the desire for independence and social prestige on the part of his sister-in-law who lives with them, and the love-affair of the house-keeper's daughter.

All characters - major and minor - are skillfully drawn and command the reader's interest, as well as his sympathy or, in some cases, his amusement." - from the dj, Note the dj is not present with this copy].
