WHAT IS A PRINT ON DEMAND BOOK?

A Print On Demand (POD) book is, as the name implies, printed by the publisher on demand, meaning the books are made to order for the customer.

TERMS AND CONDITIONS

Due to the nature of POD books, they are non-returnable to the publisher. Therefore we require a non-refundable deposit in the amount of 50% of the cost of the book before we submit the order to the publisher. This deposit is then applied toward the final cost of the book once it arrives. All Print On Demand books are final sale.

We should also note that due to the nature of print on demand titles, the quality of the book can differ from that of a regular book, in that sometimes in the event of older material it can appear like a scan or photocopy, or occasionally have an unappealing design, layout, or typeface.

Once the POD book is ordered it typically takes about 2-3 weeks to receive your copy at the store, at which point we would charge your credit card for the balance owing (minus the deposit already charged) and, depending on which option you chose at checkout, contact you regarding shipping or to let you know the order is ready for pick-up.

By adding a Print On Demand title to your cart and completing the checkout process, you agree to our terms and conditions.

If you have any questions about Print On Demand books, please contact your nearest McNally Robinson bookstore.

*Note: These terms and conditions do not apply to Print-On-Demand titles that are currently in stock at one of our bookstores.

Description

“The night they came for Til, they took me too.”

In the tenements of London England, 1904 is a dangerous time to be suffragettes on crusade. Shannon’s aunt Matilda 'Til' Stone, gynecologist and suffragette, believes women should have the right to birth control and self determination. After ten years spent at Til’s side, Shannon has trained as a midwife to be her right hand. After a brutal attack that was meant to destroy their work, Shannon is shipped off to Canada to avoid the scandal around Til’s arrest.

In Oakland, Manitoba, Shannon lands in a women’s rights battle that shakes the community and threatens the new hospital. As a midwife, Shannon helps the women of the community find their voice while she finds her own. Faced with a choice to live a normal life as a wife and mother or go back to England and crusade with her aunt, this book explores her choices and how they affect an entire community.

"The Night They Came for Til" is a historical fiction novel based on true events.
