Synopsis

Verena Berger lives the typical European twentieth century immigrant dream. In 1979, she and her husband, Willy, moved - speaking little to no English - from a densely populated Switzerland to Central British Columbia. Verenaås collection of creative non-fiction writings include their experiences as new Canadians living on a remote rural property - where they accumulated a yard full of goats and pigs before building a fence, and had children before running water - and other comical ESL (English as a second language) situations. Immigrants as well as second or third-generation Canadians will relate to these humorous and heartwarming recollections.
