Summary

Each novel in Ruth Glover's Saskatchewan Saga is filled with enchanting characters, surprising plots, and fascinating historical detail. Set in the late 1800s, the stories introduce Scottish and English emigrants who bravely journey to the wild Canadian frontier.In Journey to Bliss, Glover's third book in the saga, Tierney Caulder loses Robbie Dunbar, the man she loves, when he leaves Scotland for Canada. When Anne Fraser, her best friend, is attacked by a man her family will not fight against, the two girls share their fear of a hopeless future. That is, until the British Women's Emigration Society makes them an offer they can't refuse--freedom and independence working as domestics in the wilds of Canada. On their trip across the sea, the two young women meet the frail Pearly Chapel, whose faith in God makes her a tower of strength in uncertain times. But will Pearly's prayers be enough to keep them safe? What will happen in their new homes? Will Tierney and Robbie ever be together again?

    Martha Pfeiffer, age 19, was one of 844 persons who perished when a ship chartered for the Western Electric annual picnic capsized in Chicago in 1915. Martha's surviving family members never recovered from their grief. The Eastland Disaster has been mostly overlooked in recent years. 
    In 1997, Pearl Pospisil, a retired Chicago writer, and third-generation Pfeiffer, composed a family history and delivered it to her niece, Zara Vrabel, in St. Paul, who was completely unfamiliar with its contents. Pearl had one request: "Do something with this." 
    Zara, also a journalist, was cut off from her family and had no interest in genealogy. However, learning of her great-aunt's death on the Eastland Disaster made Zara's heart sink. 
    Zara's life unravels as she becomes entangled in the plot and realizes that she and her great-aunt shared more than blood. After discovering that the accident was preventable, Zara initially seeks redress. And the release of another Titanic movie poured salt on a fresh wound. So why was the Eastland consigned to oblivion while the Titanic got all the glory? 
    Flower in the River interweaves the past and present of four generations of an Eastern-European immigrant family. It suggests that even an unknown trauma can affect a family for generations.

    Fleeing persecution in Poland, a young Jewish family settled in England where two brothers begin work in a cigarette factory. Enduring poverty and scant support from their father after their mother dies, the brothers decide to take matters into their own hands and set sail for Africa. It was 1891 when Morris and David, both young teenagers, arrived in Port Elizabeth, South Africa.  With neither family nor friends they decide to try their hand in the cigarette business, the only thing they knew.  They befriend Nguni, a large and well-muscled man of the Xhosa tribe, who leads them into the African bush to find a tobacco farming community and to offer protection from the dangers of wild animals that they never even knew existed. With the solid grounding their parents instilled in their upbringing, the boys learn to adapt and accept Africa’s ways, her people and her cultures. Taking on a life filled with danger, mystery and strange customs is one thing, but can they take on an international corporation and survive? This book is based on a true story.
