For 250 years, the Glenaladale estate on Prince Edward Island’s north shore has been a monument to the courage and ingenuity of Scottish immigrants to the new world. In recent years, the magnificent property has fallen on hard times and is in danger of being lost forever. But Mary J. Gallant and Aggi-Rose Reddin are not about to let that happen. With their ragtag group of volunteers, they are saving Glenaladale.
