The story Bacon weaves around the fateful events in December 1917 in Halifax, NS is very engaging. The courageous spirit of the people of Halifax and Nova Scotia, Canada as well as the kindness and generosity of the people of Boston is truly inspiring.
An engaging and detailed account of a horrific disaster that not many people have heard of.
