Author Biography

Now retired, Peter Roberts and his spouse Glenna divide their time between an art-filled pied a terre apartment in Ottawa and a country house in the Gatineau hills where he is at work on a new book on the return to the homeland campaign which saw so many misguided Canadians of east European origin lured to return to the misery of their communist ruled ancestral lands.
