In stock now Award Winning Author and Educator Zig MisiakSee more

Real Peoples History has published 5 books written by Zig Misiak. First Nations, Metis & Inuit based content from children’s books to biographies.

Raymond Skye and Zig Misiak collaborated and created the Six Nations Iroquois Program Teachers Resources Guide now used in 100’s of schools in Ontario, other parts of Canada and the United States. It is multi-cultural, cross-curricular and current.

The breathtaking new novel set during the Blitz by the bestselling and critically acclaimed author of the reader and bookseller favourite, Little Bee.

As World War Two begins, Mary--a newly qualified teacher in London, left behind to teach the few children not evacuated--meets Tom, a school official. They quickly fall in love, but this is not a simple love story. . . . Moving from Blitz-torn London to the Siege of Malta, this is an epic story of love, loss, prejudice and incredible courage.

"This is a story about love, but not the cinematic kind many wartime romances offer. Instead, it is a story about what violence and uncertainty can take away, and what remains in its place. . . . [Cleave's] oservations on love are not breathless or starry-eyed. They are sad, and real." —Toronto Star

"Everyone Brave Is Forgiven is an absorbing, sharply paced novel." —The Guardian (UK)

"Cleave portrays the visceral experiences of war with skill and empathy. . . . With Everyone Brave Is Forgiven Cleave cements his reputation as a skilful storyteller and a sensitive chronicler of the interplay between the political and the personal." —The Observer (UK)
