About this product
- DescriptionMona Parsons was the only female Canadian civilian to be imprisoned by the Nazis in Occupied Holland. The story describes how Parsons, raised in rural Nova Scotia and trained as an actor, then a nurse, came to be involved in the nascent Dutch resistance in World War Two. Interrogated by the Gestapo, then sentenced to death by a Nazi military court, Parsons ultimately served three years at hard labour. An intense air attack by the Allies in March 1945 was the backdrop for her dramatic escape, aided by a young Dutch baroness. But freedom wasn't the end of her life's challenges.
- Author BiographyBorn and raised in Toronto, Andria Hill-Lehr is a writer and therapist for whom Nova Scotia has been home for 25 years. She has written for Canada's History magazine, Maclean's, The Chronicle Herald, and Saltscapes, and is the author of two books.
