I recently published the novel, "Thrice Blest", based loosely on the story of my family immigrating to Western Canada from Galicia in 1905. Below is a brief description of the book:

At the turn of the twentieth century, in a village on a tributary of the Dniester River, Ukrainian people have struggled against poverty, oppression, and persistent efforts to obliterate their identity, language, culture, and religion. Through these trials and tribulations, it is their unwavering faith, which sustains them.

By tradition, Yuriy Martiniuk's small plot of land is destined to be divided among his five sons. It cannot possibly sustain future generations. Many Ukrainian peasants find themselves in a similar situation and there is a growing trend to seek a better life through emigration. Yuriy, worries that he his too old to emigrate, while his wife, Anna, is desperately opposed to the plan. Conscription, marriage, and emigration separate the family and scatter it across three continents. Two brothers remained in Galicia, one immigrates to Misiones, Argentina, and the remainder of the family immigrates to Saskatchewan, on the Canadian Prairies. Their lives are played out against the backdrop of the momentous events of the twentieth century, including two world wars, a worldwide economic depression, and political uncertainties. Hard work, perseverance, and faith reward all three branches of the family and future generations testify to having been thrice blest.
