About the Book

A Bear in War

In 1915, 37-year-old Lawrence Browning Rogers enlisted in the Fifth Canadian Mounted Rifles, leaving behind his wife, two children, and their farm in East Farnham, Quebec. Over the next two and a half years, the family exchanged hundreds of letters, and daughter Aileen sent her beloved Teddy overseas to keep her father safe.

Teddy returned home safely, but Lieutenant Rogers did not. He was killed in the battle of Passchendaele.

Eighty-five years later, Lawrence’s granddaughter found Teddy, the letters, and other war memorabilia packed away in a briefcase.

And she discovered a moving story of one family’s love and sacrifice – a story shared by the families of so many soldiers who have lost their lives in the defense of their country.
