You won't always find the perfect gift shopping online or in the big box stores. With this in mind, I recently decided to partake in a shopping trip to the village of Bath.

This quaint community is located along the Loyalist Parkway between Kingston and the Glenora Ferry. It overlooks Lake Ontario and offers a beautiful view of Amherst Island to the south.

A reader's review

November 27, 2018

Once in a blue moon I receive a note from a reader asking me to review something for this column, or hoping to share a book they have loved. One such note came from Rosamund Hyde of Tamworth. She sent a lovely little write-up about Rilla of Ingleside by LM Montgomery, a book she describes as “a hidden treasure within a well-known body of work.” She gave me permission to share her review here.
