Laughed Till They Cried by Sally Barnes
Publisher: Boularderie Island Press
Laughed Till They Cried chronicles the lives of three post-war girls who grow up amidst a group of quirky characters in a small town in Eastern Ontario. Ultimately they settle in historic Kingston where they get involved in politics and form the core of a closely knit group of 12 women who call themselves The Cell Sisters – just for the hell of it. The Cell weathers everything life can throw at a group of women hell bent on taking on the world. Nothing can stop them—until old age ruins everything.

As a journalist, she worked at the Kingston Whig Standard, The Ottawa Citizen, The Toronto Telegram, The Toronto Star, and CITY TV. The Napanee native was president of the Ontario Legislative Press Gallery, served as Press Secretary to Ontario Premier Bill Davis for seven years, and was President of the Ontario Council on the Status of Women.
