William Forsyth: Land of Hopes and Dreams

Kings County Museum

In 1798, William Forsyth arrives in the new world from Scotland, trained as a clergyman and determined to make his mark. After a false start or two, William finds his place in the Annapolis Valley and begins a forty-year ministry. This historical novel is for anyone who is interested in Planter history, or the roots of Presbyterian traditions.
Join author Carolyn Nicholson as she launches her first book. Years of delving into family history inspired her to turn pages of research into her first book. She is a graduate of Mount St. Vincent University and the Atlantic School of Theology as well as the Halifax Infirmary School of Health Information Management, and has worked in both these fields as well as teaching at the post-secondary level.
She is currently retired and has completed her second book about her ancestors, with the working title of: Traitors, Cannibals, Highlanders, and Vikings.
Carolyn lives in Halifax and continues to research her Nova Scotia roots, in the company of her three sisters, who are always happy to go with her on her research adventures.
