So sad to hear that Mary Beacock Fryer passed away last month. These three biographies of the Simcoes have been *incredibly* important sources for my own writing, including the Toronto Book of the Dead.

Excited to be digging into this one. Research for what might just prove to be my next book. #autumnramblesTO
Halloween decorations follow me & my book everywhere we go. #autumnramblesTO
