A Matter of Conscience – Mary Hosmar

Fifteen-year-old Jamie MacPherson is confused. Everyone seems to want change but can’t agree as to how that change should come about. William Lyon Mackenzie is calling the people of Upper Canada to arm themselves and break free of British rule, and Jamie’s friends and neighbours are all for joining Mackenzie and his army.

His father is dead set against violence of any sort and has tried to pass those ideals along to his son.

Will Jamie follow his father’s wishes and stay home or will he go along with popular opinion and join the rebels?

Join Jamie as he struggles with family, religious, and political issues surrounding the Upper Canada Rebellion of 1837.
