At a time of great sacrifice in Canadian history, we are welcomed into the homes, the hearts and minds of mothers, sons, fathers, and friends as we follow Syd Smith and his high-school brotherhood of 13 as they answer the call to duty in 1941. Written with his son David, Lifting the Silence is also a father and son journey of discovery that uncovers a remarkable letter that serves as testament to what still defines Canada today.

Postmarked "France August 1946," this fragile letter bares the soul of a people beaten down by cruel times and extols their admiration and gratitude for Canada as a nation of spiritual and economic resources that helped them out so much during the war. Its final words resonate with seemingly prophetic significance as they impart a heartfelt expression of hope to someday again receive the downed pilot they had sheltered in 1942.

As if by Providence, this letter now serves to reunite Syd with his angel of the French Resistance 61 years later.
