Sandra Gwyn's first highly praised non-fiction work, The Private Capital, won the Governor General's Award and was a national bestseller. Tapestry of War brings to brilliant life the Great War experiences of ten Canadians, three of them women. Through diaries, personal letters, and memoirs, enriched by anecdotes and meticulous research, Sandra Gwyn has created a vivid world where, as Elizabeth Longford noted, "The boom of the guns never drowns the voices of the people."
