Author: Fay Thomson Bland & Phoebe Fitz Wallace
Synopsis: In 1940, Fay and Phoebe, coeds at McGill University, spent an unforgettable summer at The Abbey in Fort St. John, British Columbia. The Abbey, an Anglican mission, was home to Monica Storrs and her missionaries (“mishes”). The girls did house and farm work and, traveling miles by horseback, came to know many settlers in this three-million-acre Peace River Block. Their letters home give us a glimpse of this extraordinary adventure.
