Sandra Campbell grew up in Norfolk County and she fondly remembers many a summer family outing along the warm, relaxing shores of Lake Erie. She loves history and nature and has always had a special fondness for Long Point where she still enjoys taking long walks along the tranquil shores. Several years ago, it was during one of her outings there, that she imagined and asked herself, “What if . . . ? What if a family who lived along these shores some 200 years ago, what if they found themselves in the middle of a war—the War of 1812? What if . . . ?”
