Charles Dickens in Halifax (did he meet up with Haliburton in the Gov't house?)
My rating: 4 of 5 stars
This is a detailed book and gives little insights in Charles Dickens' mind from the point of view of a close friend and later executor of Dickens' will. I like this book because it gives an additional insight into Dickens first trip to North America when he stopped in Halifax NS, and after a choppy sea crossing and having his ship run aground on the mudbanks off NS, was immediately greeted with fanfare by the local politicians in Halifax and was taken to the Government Building where he was paraded as a celebrity, which he didn't care for so much.
