I would love your feedback if you have read my book. Please leave your comment below!
The book tells of an adventurous, gregarious, intelligent woman and her hardships, joys and family. Sibylla was born in 1918 in Deventer, the Netherlands. Her spirit of independence and hard work helped her survive WW11 by pursuing many jobs during the war and after, such as delivering government documents throughout the Netherlands, working for the British Censorship, and even importing and selling cigarettes using suitcases.
She immigrated to Canada with her husband in 1948 to establish Ontario’s largest garden center, Humber Nurseries Ltd., while raising four children. The book is written by her daughter, who chronicles all the stories of her mother’s life, to create a remarkable novel. The stories are full of humour, sadness, and wonderful travel adventures and illustrate the beauty of generations of family bonds.
