We Are Unbreakable: Raw, Real Stories of Resilience: From Women in Nova Scotia in 2020 (Hardcover)
We Are Unbreakable: Raw, Real Stories of Resilience is a collection of authentic and inspiring stories about the unprecedented year of 2020 written by 22 incredible women who call Nova Scotia home.
In these stories you will find examples of struggle, strength, togetherness and, mostly, of resilience as these remarkable women, from many different age groups and walks of life, share their experiences of living, working, running businesses and parenting through a global pandemic, along with a year of horrific tragedies that rocked the entire province of Nova Scotia in so many ways.
A portion of the proceeds from this book will establish a bursary program aimed at women in rural Nova Scotia who have overcome adversity and barriers to pursue their education and who demonstrate the qualities of resiliency and strength that are captured in the pages of this book.
Twenty-two contributors is of special significance because that is the number of innocent and beautiful souls (plus one unborn baby) who were taken from us so tragically in April 2020 in the worst mass shooting in Canadian history.
We will remember them.
We will honour them.
And we will build a legacy in their memory.
