"A work of great courage, this richly textured first novel is a painfully honest portrait of life as a single mother on Prince Edward Island in the 1970s and 80s. At the same time, The Ashes of My Dreams exposes the underbelly of a system that for decades remained a widely known but unspoken and shameful secret – and which went on to affect a generation of young women and their lost children." -- Laurie Brinklow, Author of Here for the Music
