All the Journey Through [University of Toronto Press Incorporated: Toronto, 1997] 
by C.M. Blackstock (Author)
All the Journey Through [University of Toronto Press Incorporated: Toronto, 1997] by C.M. Blackstock (Author)
All the Journey Through is also the story of the making of a Toronto family, though much of the narrative takes place outside the city. Recollecting her childhood in the 1920s and 1930s, the author begins with the large weekly family dinner parties and the Sunday afternoon teas for the children held at her grandmother's house in Toronto, and the happy times spent at that grandmother's summer house on Lake Simcoe. Then, quoting extensively from the letters, which date from 1817 to 1919, the author reaches further back into the past.
