BOOK - Susanna's Quill, Based on the Life of Susanna Moodie
By Julia Johnston
Published by Tundra Books, Toronto, 2004

Susanna's Quilt is a work of historical fiction based on the life of Susanna Moodie, writer and pioneer, by award-winning author Julie Johnston.

The story takes us into Susanna’s genteel English childhood, through her humorous teenage attempts at writing, growing to her burgeoning independence, marriage to Dunbar Moodie, and their decision to emigrate from England. To the Moodies, Canada was the answer to their prayers. They would have the life they could no longer afford in Britain and they could raise their children to become wealthy landowners in their own right.

The adventures that thwart this dream become a story of lost illusions and a found sense of self-reliance and inner strength.

Author's Biography - Julie Johnston:
    Julie Johnston received the Governor General’s Award for her first two books, Hero of Lesser Causes and Adam and Eve and Pinch-Me. Her third novel, The Only Outcast, was shortlisted for the Governor General’s Award, as was her most recent book, In Spite of Killer Bees. In 2003, Julie Johnston was awarded the Vicky Metcalf Award for Children’s Literature in recognition of the enormous contribution her body of work has made to children’s literature. Julie Johnston lives in Peterborough, Ontario.
