Abstract:

The Work of Her Hands is Plynn Gutman's effort to capture the stories of her grandmother's life and to recreate a way of life that has all but vanished from our memories. Marie Anne Lacaille would have said she was an ordinary woman, but to her granddaughter and her family, she was an inspiration, the source of her family's strength and an incredible cook. From her move to Saskatchewan from Quebec in the early 1900s, to her raising a family through the a30s, to her reinvention as a working woman in the a50s, Marie Anne Lacaille lived her life with style, humour and an ability to create spectacular meals out of thin air.
