Author:

It’s summer, 1963, and Early and Toby dream of building an opera house in Africville, a black community struggling with poverty and illiteracy tethered to the north shore of Halifax, considered by many, a festering sore. But to simple-­minded Early Okander, brightly painted houses sprinkled haphazardly across train tracks, it’s poetry. He and Toby enjoy idyllic days rafting on Bedford Basin, dreaming of blueberry pancakes, and scavenging for church doors in the nearby dump with Penny, the kid from up the hill who’s bobbed her hair and reinvented herself into Chub. Both Early and Chub find refuge from abuse and intolerance around the kitchen table of Toby’s grandpa Aubrey—the interracial friendships much to the disapproval of Mrs. Aada Dupuis, Aubrey’s neighbour hell bent on making him husband number three. Safe and warm in this dilapidated house, the 1917 explosion and Aubrey’s war experiences are relived, along with the struggles of Toby’s parents and Aubrey’s long infatuation . . .
