History without the stiffness and polish time creates.

Canada's journey to Confederation kicked off with a bang -- or rather, a circus, a civil war (the American one), a small fortune's worth of champagne, and a lot of making love -- in the old-fashioned sense. Miss Confederation offers a rare look back, through a woman's eyes, at the men and events at the centre of this pivotal time in Canada's history.

Mercy Anne Coles, the daughter of PEI delegate George Coles, kept a diary of the social happenings and political manoeuvrings as they affected her and her desires. A unique historical document, her diary is now being published for the first time, offering a window into the events that led to Canada's creation, from a point of view that has long been neglected.
