The memoirs of Violet Guymer, Canada's first female licensed funeral director. She was a twenty four year old English wife and mother who immigrated to Canad in 1909 along with her brother-in-law, husband, two small children and high hopes. Only nine years later she was a widow - now with five children (an another one one the way), no husband and no brother-in-law. What should she do... go back home to England where she had family and everything was familiar, accept welfare, or pick up her skirts and build a life for herself and her children as the town's undertaker in the primitive and isolated northern town of The Pas, Manitoba which they now called home?
