Philomene's Doll: Going to Canada

Philomene Heads to Canada

Two weeks before Christmas, Abner LaForest from Belle River, Canada, appears to take Philomene and her young sister, Nancy, to his home in Belle River, Canada. A kind and talkative man in contrast to Philomene’s father, Abner talks all the way to Canada about his wife and family and the wonders they are to expect. In the few hours it takes for Abner’s horse to pull the threesome to the ferry at the Canadian border, Abener has likely talked to Philomene more than her own father did during her six years of childhood.
