“The Floathouse” Series

Just a quick note to let you know how much I enjoyed your first book. [T]he history was very informative. And of course the re-connection to Norway was fascinating.
C. Paul Ridout, Honorary Consul for Norway (Retired)
Pictures, maps, copies of old documents and recipes grace and inform this fascinating account of a family migration from Norway to Canada. The overall story is imaginatively put together and engaging.
