    1. This book has special meaning for me, my Grandmother Dorothy Jackson-Morse was a survivor, and this book was written by her cousin(Author James Mahar), My Grandmother did not openly speak about the events of that day, or the loss of nearly everyone she knew and loved, so it was both eye-opening, and heartbreaking to have this as a form of reference, something to help me understand a very complex, often sad woman.

    2. A detailed account of the Halifax Explosion of 1917, and the profound effect it had on one large family. The detail in the book is amazing. It is of course a very sad story, but in the end one of hope and resilience and the power of the human spirit to not just survive, but to thrive.

    3. I had a hard time getting through this book. It's an interesting topic; I have lived in Halifax a good part of my life and, when I am in the north end, the area hardest hit, I often think of that terrible day on December 6, 1917 when Halifax was forever changed after the most violent and destructive disaster in Canadian history. It's summertime though and I tend towards lighter reading and this was anything but and was quite depressing to read. It is gruesome with very descriptive details on jus [...]

    4. Written by relatives of those who survived the Halifax explosion in Canada in 1917. Sad recounting of the blast & aftermath for the Jackson family, who lost many family members.

    5. Do I really need to know how each person block by block was killed? Too depressing and repetitive to read much more

    6. Picked this book up one summer in Halifax, while on a school trip. I wasn't able to put it down! I cried while reading it. The resiliency of the survivors is unfathomable.
