150 Cdn Women-Madam of the Maritimes

    Those of you that participated in the 150 Canadian Women quilt do you remember  #148 Ada Jane McCallum. Blain Henshaw has written Madam of the Maritimes, The Life and Times of Ada McCallum. 

In 2019, Blain called me regarding the research on the 150 Canadian Women quilt and why I had chosen Ada. 'I thought she was interesting.' As usual when reading a book I read the first chapter then go immediately to the last 5-6 pages to see what happens, ie who ends up with whom. Much to my surprise, the 150 quilt program is featured in the last pages. 

Although I'm presently in the middle of a steamy romance novel, my next read will be Madam of the Maritimes by Blain Henshaw. Haven't you been curious about the red light districts, the saloons of yesteryear? You know that they've been around since the beginning of time.

Happy Quilting!
