Book Description
Emily: Song of a Newfoundland Life by Denise Batten is a story written in verse and based on the life of the authorís maternal grandmother, Emily Nolan, who was born in rural Newfoundland in 1900. Denise Batten tells the story of Emily's colourful life, which reflects the lives of so many courageous Newfoundland women of her time.

The verses have been put to music, so the story of Emily can be sung Ė much like a traditional Irish ballad or story song. Readers will also enjoy the photos of original hand-hooked rugs designed specifically for the project by Kaaren Batten, a gifted Ontario artist.

About the Author
Denise has been writing poetry, songs and stories since her high school days. Much of her writing has been inspired by childhood memories and personal experiences unique to her rural Newfoundland upbringing. Her grandmotherís life story provided the inspiration for the poetry featured here in Deniseís first published book.
