Autobiography Challenge: Today's picks

"They All Fall Down" by Mary E. McIntyre

In a freak storm, a centuries-old elm smashes her grandmother's cottage on Lake Scugog, killing a child. The fallout as told by ten-year old McIntyre relives the tragedy of 1957, and chronicles the stoicism of an extended British immigrant family. On Washburn Island, unfamiliar grief replaces child-like innocence.
