  1. ThornApple Tree 1942, 230p, hc, with dust jacket, went into about 18 printings as of June 1947
    "Thorn-Apple Tree is the long awaited Canadian novel that does for the Scottish settlers in Glengarry that Marie Chapdelaine did for the Habitant.It is the nearest we have to a national common denominator in fiction. Rich in Character and background, it gives the heart of the native born such a tug that it will be a well-loved story for years to come. It not only has an outer, physical accuracy as social history; but--far more important-- it reflect the inner, spiritual essence of the soul of Canada at a formative stage of its growth." W A Deacon, Library Editor, Toronto Globe & Mail [from dust jacket]




  2. The Higher Hill1944, hc, 320 p,
    The Higher Hill is the story of a Pioneer family in Glengarry, Ontario, at the time of the War of 1812, told with charm and dramatic tapestry of the lives and loves of the MacAlpins living on their farm called Tulloch Ard. With here innate awareness of scenic beauty, and her gift for singing words that makes her books easily read, Grace Campbell presents with deep understanding a group of characters notable for their stamina and high spirits, their valour in battle and the tenderness of their domestic relations. Of special significance today is the author's consciousness of the feelings of mother and young wives whose sons and husbands are for away, facing dangers to guard their homeland. As Mrs Campbell makes plain that the problems of the human heart are the sae in one century as in another, we recognize the greater maturity of her thoughts and philosophy. [from dust jacket]

  3. Fresh Wind Blowing 1947, hc, 233p, Originally published with a dust jacket
    This is a story about that generation of young people whose willing sacrifice was like a fresh wind blowing across the dusty wastes of our common life. But it is not a war book. Only twice, and briefly, does it touch on military action. The scene is laid on this side of the water, ranging from the western plains eastward to the sea. [from the dust jacket] Review
