Matthew Manera

Matthew Manera’s novel tells the story of Gretchen Williamson, a young woman searching for her independence in the Ontario townships near Port Credit in the 1850s. With effective research and engaging story telling, Manera’s novel designs the catalysts that change Gretchen’s life — her allurement to an Ojibwa sage, her enchantment with an Irish seer, her attraction to a young stone hooker, and ultimately her love of books and the emerging technology around them.
