"I read this book and loved it from beginning to end. Who would know that Candian history could be so intriguing!? The assasination of Darcy McGee was a shocking event in 1868 and this book creates an authentic feel for the way people experienced it. The mystery takes in the history of the Fenians and weaves in the personalities of key political figures of the time. You will meet Canada’s first Prime Minister! It is also a “who dunnit “ and young Clara is an enjoyable clever protagonist. A very enjoyable read. I hope to hear more tales from Clara Swift in the future!"

"A very well-written piece of historical fiction set around the assassination of one of Canada's most intriguing Fathers of Confederation. Young Clara Swift, who tells the story of Thomas D'Arcy McGee's murder and the subsequent trial of his accused killer, is a finely-drawn character who is completely believable as she recounts what the experiences. The author does an excellent job of putting McGee's death in context of the politics of the time. A good murder mystery that you can also learn a lot of history from!"
