A Pilgrim Passing Through is a historical fiction book that is based on a true family history.
In A Pilgrim Passing Through, ten-year-old Gottlob Müller travels from England to Canada as a British Home Child in the early 1900s. His life is chronicled in this book, as is that of Gladys Mitchell, a coalminer's daughter from Scotland.
The story tells of the hardships of immigration a century ago, and of the difficulties encountered by many of the more than 100,000 child immigrants who came to Canada as British Home Children.
It is a story of strength and determination; of difficulties and sacrifice. As you read you will realize what many of our ancestors encountered on their arrival in Canada.
A Pilgrim Passing Through is also a story of love, triumph, and success. As you travel on this journey with Gottlob and Gladys you will realize the contributions that our ancestors made in this country.
