Beginnings is an expanded version of two-time Governor-General Award winner Dorothy Livesay’s fictionalized memoirs. A collection of more than 15 short stories follows the young life of Elizabeth, Livesay’s character, living in Winnipeg from just before the First World War when she was three, until 1920 when her family moves to Toronto.

Starting within her own family, Elizabeth’s journey expands outwards to include her neighbourhood, her school, her city, and eventually the world at large, as she waits patiently for the war to end and her father to return home.
