Beneath the Wings of Love
Roberta Kim , author
Beneath the Wings of Love recounts the 54-year marriage of Murray and Ginger Dadson, beginning in the war years and then the raising of their 5 children and arrival of grandchildren. Chapters include sections of love letters written by Murray during the war. Murray and Ginger were an ordinary couple who came from different backgrounds, and the book explores the couple's ancestral stories and how they may have impacted the marriage. Murray's stories of his depression-era childhood bring to life a piece of Canadian history from Toronto's lakeshore district. There were some surprises along the way, most notably a fall down the corporate ladder for Murray and the "coming out" story of one son, and the book looks at the impact of these on the couple.
