Chaudière Falls, by Ottawa author, David Mulholland, is “a novel of dramatized history” with characters both fictional and historical. The story begins in March 1800, when Philemon Wright arrives in Hull Township and ends in September 1860, when Prince Albert Edward lays the cornerstone for Canada’s Parliament Buildings. Immigrants include 10-year-old Jedediah Jansen who, as an adult, struggles to balance his marriage with his job in the volatile timber industry. With Bytowners resenting Colonel By's civil authority, the lawless settlement is rampant with self-serving politics, religious bigotry, and barbaric violence. Not your typical high school history book. The narrative is riveting.
