Irish Nationals were to invade Canada? To trade it to the British for Ireland? I'm utterly flabbergasted! Preposterous, what! Harumf! Okay that's the extent of my turn of the century British minister. But who doesn't love their Victorian history lesson served up with a nice chunk of alcoholic Prime Ministers? Ann, from Booklorn, uncovers the evidence and brings us her findings on Delusion:
Peter Edwards does an excellent job of both research and translating that research into an interesting read. Edwards chose not to create dialogue for the book so as not to invent what any of these people would say. This choice works very well because the snippets of writing from newspaper reports and personal papers that he uses to give each of the people a voice better than imagined dialogue. The research into the times as well as the individuals helps solidify the world in which Henri Le Caron was operating.
