Manitoba Publisher Buys Ravenscraig

Heartland and Associates, a Manitoba publishing house, has purchased the Canadian rights to Ravenscraig by Sandi Krawchenko Altner.

The book will be launched in Winnipeg on November 29, 2011, at the McNally Robinson store at Grant Park.

A sweeping epic set at the turn of the 20th century, Ravenscraig reveals the secrets and lies that tie two families together.  Rupert Willows has hidden away his past to manipulate his way to wealth and power.  Zev Zigman, a devout Jew, mounts a desperate struggle to bring his family out of Russia and put down roots in Winnipeg’s North End.

Tragedies, triumphs, and the Titanic shape the lives of these two families as their futures entwine to illuminate a dark corner of Winnipeg’s past when it was the fastest growing city in the Dominion.
