Following the direction outlined in the recent notice from the University, effective immediately the UPEI Bookstore will be closed until further notice, in response to the COVID-19 crisis.
For anyone requiring resources/materials for their courses for the current semester, there is the option of ebooks/access codes for select courses via our website.
Please visit https://upei.bookware3000.ca/Course/campus to shop for these materials. Email delivery will be provided.
Please note, you will only receive your access code once the order is processed, and orders will only be processed periodically, so we ask for your patience with this matter.
Unfortunately at this time, the store is not open, and shipping is unavailable so physical textbooks, clothing and school supplies are not available.
Please contact bookstore@upei.ca for any questions.

Letters From The Manse


?Well-written, superbly detailed, and delightfully witty . . .I read this collection of letters in one gulp . . . I gave this manuscript to my 86-year-old mother who also read it in one sitting.?
Dr. Margaret Conrad, Honorary Research Professor at the University of New Brunswick

FROM THE INTRODUCTION
by folklorist John Cousins:

?There was a time, no further away than half a century, when Canadians were mainly a country people, scattered in a network of village and farming communities, to the edges of Canada . . . And, in thousands of these places, seeking to give spiritual unity to the ordinary people, laboured the Protestant clergyman and his wife.

They were a special breed, these churchmen and women. We knew them from a distance, for they were in our place, but somehow not of it. . . They did not attend dances nor did they discuss hockey. They had apparently no knowledge of the fight at the party down the road. . . They did not Gossip, and They Did Not Take the Name of The Lord Their God in Vain. Some of them (the men) smoked, but most did not, and, surely, They Did Not Drink. Most important of all, They Did Not Talk Politics . . .

We knew also that Protestant clergy usually came in pairs, and that, too, was good . . . thus, The United Church Couple.

Letters from the Manse. For she paints in the vivid colours we knew were there, and illuminates the fascinating personal experience of two young, idealistic, and dynamic church people in the rural Canada of half a century ago. . .?
