Praise

Once We Had a Country crackles and sweats as it sweeps us from the farmlands of Niagara to the steamy jungles of Laos. With his elegant prose, Robert McGill forces us to question what we believe in, what we love, and just how much we’re willing to sacrifice.”
—Tanis Rideout, author of Above All Things

Once We Had a Country explores the hubris of missionary work and the naiveté of living off the land. The predicaments of a father and daughter illuminate the troubles that can plague our efforts to encourage love. Robert McGill examines the inner workings of the outsider’s life, both here and abroad. A complex and compelling read.”
—Michael Winter, author of Minister without Portfolio

“Like a troubled dream I couldn’t shake, Once We Had a Country drew me in and held me captive. Robert McGill’s characters took up residence in my heart with all their baggage. They’re still there.”
—Frances Greenslade, author of Shelter

Praise for Robert McGill:
“A talented writer, adept at expressing the nuanced, unspoken truths that beg the lies by which we live.”
The Observer

“A young writer of remarkable talent and enormous narrative appetites–a storyteller who refuses to keep things straight, and…produces freshly captivating effects.”
—Andrew Pyper, author of The Killing Circle and The Guardians
