FICTION

From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden
From Ragged London to the Garden of Eden by Jean Jardine Miller.

Two children desperately try to keep their family together in a slum in Victorian Bromley-by-Bow. On their mother's death, they are taken to Annie Macpherson's House of Industry leaving their small sister and baby brother with their only relative. After spending the winter and spring in the relative comfort of Macpherson's 'Beehive', they sail for Canada with one of the early parties of children destined for life on Ontario farms. Apprehensive at first, as the years go by they both come to appreciate the fulfilling lives they are able to attain by taking the opportunities offered to them by the people who take them in.

The Family History
The Family History - a novel by Jean Jardine Miller.

Early death. Bereavement. Single parenthood. Children. Life.

The parallels between her twenty-first century bereaved Canadian family and its mid-Victorian London counterpart become empathetically evident when Holly traces her family history through census records, and finds her imagination captured by glimpses into her ancestors’ lives in the crowded Thames-side streets and alleys.

FICTION

Fate and Angus McGrath
Fate and Angus McGrath by Jean Jardine Miller.

Marilyn might break with tradition and refuse to bestow the traditional McGrath first name on either of her sons, but her brother-in-law is not so superstitious. His child's journey, through childhood ADHD and adolescent rebellion, teen prostitution and drug addiction, rehabilitation and relapse, to eventual maturity and a too-early death, continually surfaces to impact on the lives of all the McGraths in this absorbing Canadian novel set in Ontario in the late 20th century.

POETRY

Songs of My Soul
Songs of My Soul by Kirstin Miller.

While victims of anxiety disorders in Canada and around the world have found Songs of My Soul to be an excellent resource for communicating their own fear, anxiety and panic to family and friends, young people - with and without anxiety disorders - relate strongly to the book. The words come from the soul of Canadian teenager whose fear prevented her from communicating with her peers during her lifetime. Since the posthumous publication of her poetry, her work has touched the hearts and souls of young and old alike.

NARRATIVE NON-FICTION

KIRSTIN'S STORY: no place to stand
KIRSTIN'S STORY: no place to stand by Jean Jardine Miller.

Children were not supposed to have anxiety disorders in the 1980s, when this story took place, and treatment in Canada consisted mainly of trying to track down the non-existent trauma that was causing the problem. Today, while we are, fortunately, more enlightened, misconceptions are still major hurdles when a child is referred for professional help. Whether you live in Canada or elsewhere, if you are a parent trying to understand your child's avoidance behaviour, KIRSTIN'S STORY: no place to stand will give you the answers you need in order to move on and find help.
