About the Book    Julia Grace Wales: Canada´s Hidden Heroine and the Quest for Peace 1914-1918 is the story of a remarkable Canadian woman who grew up in the Eastern Townships of Quebec during the late 1800s. Distressed by the outbreak of the Great War in 1914, she wrote a plan for continuous mediation that could have brought the fighting to a halt early on, but the diplomats and heads of state failed to consider it seriously.
   Her conversations with European officials are surprising—and most revealing. All Canadians can take pride in Miss Wales´ work for peace. It eventually led to the organization of the League of Nations and later, the United Nations, and the relatively peaceful years we have enjoyed since 1945.
