The sacrifice, a novel by Adele Wiseman( Book )
61 editions published between 1956 and 2009 in English and Dutch and held by 612 libraries worldwide
The Sacrifice is a haunting depiction of one family and its often tragic attempts to come to terms with a new life in a new country. It is a moving, almost biblical story of a father possessed by his hope for his only son; of a son who rebels against his father{u2019}s ideals, yet sacrifices himself to preserve what his father most prizes; and of a grandson who must reconcile the flaws in his inheritance. [In this tale] Wiseman recreates, through the lives of Jewish immigrants in a Central Canadian city, the biblical story of Abraham and Isaac. --Amazon.com

Selected letters of Margaret Laurence and Adele Wiseman by Margaret Laurence( Book )
6 editions published between 1997 and 2015 in English and held by 313 libraries worldwide
"Over a period of forty years, from 1947 to 1986, Margaret Laurence and Adele Wiseman wrote to each other constantly. The topics they wrote about were as wide-ranging as their interests and experiences, and their correspondence encompassed many of the varied events of their lives. Laurence's letters - of which far more are extant than Wiseman's - reveal much about the impact of her years in Africa, motherhood, her anxieties and insecurities, and her development as a writer. Wiseman, whose literary success came early in her career, provided a sympathetic ear and constant encouragement to Laurence." "The editors' selection has been directed by an interest in these women as friends and writers. Their experiences in the publishing world offer an engaging perspective on literary apprenticeship, rejection, and success. The letters reveal the important role both women played in the buoyant cultural nationalism of the 1960s and 1970s." "This valuable collection of previously unpublished primary material will be essential to scholars working in Canadian literature and of great interest to the general reading public."--Jacket
