Silver Threads is the magical story of Anna and Ivan, two young newly-weds who escape poverty and hardship in Ukraine to start a new life on the Canadian frontier. As they struggle to build their homestead, World War I breaks out. And when Ivan volunteers to fight for his new homeland, tragedy strikes. While Anna works and waits alone, hope comes from an unexpected source. Based on true events, (see Internment of Ukrainians in Canada 1914-1920) Silver Threads is a stirring lesson in history and a heart-warming tale of love and faith. Silver Threads was the winner of the 1995 Taras Shevchenko writing award, and was selected by the Ontario Library Association as a "Best Bet for 1996".
