Winnipeg Free Press - PRINT EDITION
On The Night Table
Former MP for Winnipeg North
"Historical novels are my favourite genre, and Winnipeg author Joan Thomas offers up one of the best with Curiosity. Based on the real life story of Mary Anning who discovered the fossilized skeleton of a prehistoric creature 40 years before Darwin's The Origin of the Species, this book has it all: the struggle of a woman for recognition of her discovery, a romance that crosses class lines, and a raging debate about creation and the theory of evolution. Also on my night table is The Knife Sharpener's Bell by Rhea Tregebov and Paris 1919 by Margaret Macmillan."
