Honey and Ashes

A Story of Family
A non fiction book by

"Honey and Ashes" is the author's utterly compelling quest to explore questions that have haunted all those who live in two countries of the heart and mind. Kulyk Keefer was born in Canada, but grew up fascinated by the stories of her mother's family, who emigrated from the village of Staromischyna, or "the Old Place", once part of Poland, now belonging to the Ukraine.

Struggling to discover where her true home is, she draws us into the wonderfully complex life of her family, moving from the harsh magic of the Old Place to Depression-era Toronto.

Her absorbing account of how the troubled past of Poland and Ukraine echoes in her own family's history ends with a difficult journey back to the place where the stories began. "Honey and Ashes" reads like one of Kulyk Keefer's novels, lyrical and haunting, weaving together deep family secrets, fascinating characters, poignant memories and a powerful search for identity.
