Brothers at War

“Don Cummer offers a rich story that takes place in Upper Canada. A well written and engaging historical fiction account that raises questions about loyalty to friends, differences and tensions between families — issues with which young adolescents will relate… While relationships and politics can be cumbersome and confusing, the honest dialogue between young boys, both friends and foes, expose the raw truths in the pre-War period of 1812 Upper Canada.”
