A Rebel for Her Time

A Rebel for Her Time


Della from East Cove: Schoolmarm, accidental midwife, battlefield nurse, lover...

A refreshing and uplifting story of a young woman defying the norms of her 1900s rural Nova Scotia birth, and becoming the heroine in her own adventurous life.


“Move over, Anne Shirley! Della is the next great Maritime heroine.” - Laura Churchill Duke, author of Two Crows Sorrow

“I loved this book. Della is a brave, inspiring, and risk-taking heroine, trading the safely of her rural Nova Scotian family for active war-time medical service.” - Sue Kerr, author of Unlikely Stories of a Perfect Childhood

“Mossman’s attention to detail of matters medical during the First World War lends immediacy and authenticity to a compelling story set in a place and time with which we are no longer familiar.” - Sara Williams, co-author of Growing Fruit In Northern Gardens
