“The book is a melding of Semchuk’s personal journey, visual art, narrative, and recall….

“To dwell in this book’s pages is to experience dismay, sadness and sobering revelation. Finally though, a century later, internment stories are being told, making our nation’s history more authentic.” Steven Ross, Alberta Views

“This is a record of the author’s personal voyage through difficult terrain, mingling her voice with others, and using the visual touchstones of photography to move her reader’s imagination outward.” Andrea Kunard, Associate Curator, Canadian Photography Institute, National Gallery of Canada
