Readers Comments; 

  • Brilliant book. I read it in three sittings. Loved the Niagara on the Lake stuff. A fellow getting hit by lightning. The football politics and the fear of fear, and loss. – Adam Saunders  – Royal Regiment of Canada
  • A wonderful bildungsroman* tale of a young soccer player thrown into the depths of the Great War. – a Reader on FB

*a novel dealing with one person’s formative years or spiritual education.

  •  A GOOD READ… I enjoyed it immensely. – a Reader on FB
  • Quite and enjoyable read, based on history and a story. Thanks Rick Law, I liked the story. – a Reader on FB
  • I do not read this type of book often, this was very well written and every page was entertaining. I enjoyed – a Reader on FB
  • “Flowers of the Forest is a wonderful book. It made me laugh. It made me cry. It made me think about the war (any war) in a different way. It answered questions I never even thought to ask. I felt closer to Farquhar McClennan as more than just a mention of his name decades ago. It’s definitely a great read. Thank you, Rick, for writing this book.” – Glenys Davies

Posted by Flowers of the Forest - The Pride of Our Land

I am a retired Math Professor and now a budding author. Who would have thought? I was born in Toronto and grew up in a family of 5 boys and 1 girl. I went to Winchester Street Public School up to grade 8 and then attended Jarvis Collegiate Institute, up to grade 13. After high school I attended the University of Toronto and graduated with 2 degrees (BA honours and BEd). Following was a career in teaching, including 34 years at Humber College in Toronto, teaching Mathematics and Statistics. I managed to coauthor one textbook, an introductory Stats book. I am married to the beautiful Beth and have a great loving son named Jonathan McLaren Law. Oh yes, I am a lifelong Toronto Maple Leafs fan. I lived happily in Bolton in beautiful Caledon ON for 31 years, and I am now living in Burlington ON and loving it too. The book is available on, Chapters - Indigo and Barnes & Noble.
