Elizabeth Hay. ALONE IN THE CLASSROOM. McClelland and Stewart, 2011.

A Hawthorne Book Club selection for March. Loved this literary fiction which sucks us in with hints of murder and abuse and then presents a story of an almost invisible narrator discovering herself through researching family history and genealogy.Love how she distinguished between the facts we can find out and the things we will never know about the past and our ancestors who were there. Set in Saskatchewan in 1929 and then in Ontario in the end of the twentieth century.
