This was a fun book to read because the places mentioned in it are so familiar! While leafing through the pages, I thought, 'I've been there!!'. The author writes in an entertaining way and the reader can learn about the sometimes unusual history of the many different towns around Ontario. I especially liked the comment made by businessman and owner of the McLaughlin estate in Oshawa regarding his wealth and family. Just that made it worth the read!
