Trouble and Strife, Paperback Book

Description

Sometimes the smallest voices make the deepest impact. Josephine Hadley, a 1930s Canadian housewife, fills her days looking after her children, her indifferent husband and a stream of Depression-era visitors.

Her contribution to her guests is a bowl of stew and an open heart. Her small world, however, is soon shattered by a tragic event which forces her to become the breadwinner.

Can she run a business without sacrificing herself? And is it possible to act on a long-buried desire without remorse?Johanne Levesque's first novel, Trouble and Strife, is a poignant and heartbreaking look at a woman's life in a fast-changing time.

With intimate details and a deft poetic touch, Levesque has captured the spirit of an age where war and economic hardship altered the workplace, home and women's lives forever.
