As New: "Three-storey Victorian mansion, fully furnished, in the beautiful setting of the Thousand Islands.." The "mansion" on the St. Lawrence turned out to be a derelict farmhouse, but John recognized a one-in-a-lifetime opportunity. The couple left their secure teaching jobs and comfortable city lifestyle to pursue their passions for sculpture and art. With determination and humour, John and Rose survived that first year to look forward to many more on their island. From close brushes with death to moments of sheer euphoria. This is an intimate look into what we might all wish we had to fortitude to do.
