Ravenscraig Ravenscraig


Author: Sandi Krawchenko Altner


An epic story set at the turn of the twentieth century, Ravenscraig reveals the secrets and lies that bind two families. Rupert Willows has hidden his past to manipulate his way to wealth and power, while Zev Zigman, a devout Jew, mounts a desperate struggle to bring his family out of Russia and put down roots in Winnipeg’s North End. Tragedies, typhoid and the Titanic grip the intertwining lives of these families as they illuminate a dark corner of what was then among North America’s fastest-growing cities.
