For some light summer reading They Left Us Everything by Plum Johnson, an award winning author who lives in Toronto. It takes place in a huge turn of the century home on the shores of Lake Ontario, just outside the town of Oakville. It is a memoir of Johnson’s, inspired by the deaths of both her parents.
