Winnipeg 1913. Something happened to Marko Gobinski’s wife and daughter. Something horrible. The Ukrainian arrives in Winnipeg hoping to start a new life. But how can he when his past continues to haunt him? Mildred Spencer was beautiful, but not anymore. At least not since the horrible accident that left her with a grotesque scar on her face. Filled with self-doubt and apprehension in a society that doesn’t hold much regard for women, much less damaged ones, will she ever find true companionship? Can two people from wildly different classes ever be more than acquaintances? Hiding Scars follows Marko and Mildred as they struggle to find meaning and happiness during one of the most tumultuous periods of social upheaval in Canada’s history. They cope through The Great War, prohibition and the influenza epidemic, but can they survive Winnipeg’s explosive General Strike of 1919 when their past finally catches up?
