In “The Biography of a New Canadian Family: Volume II”, author Pierre L. Delva and his wife Joan Campbell-Delva once again shares an insightful glimpse into the field of modern medicine as it converged with their own personal and professional lives. This book is a continuation of a collaborative work aimed to trace and remember the journey that became the key to unlocking the worthy positions and legacy that the authors have now.

From Europe to America, this biography takes into account the life models that helped shape the course of the couple’s journey. It is also revelatory of how the Delvas placed utmost importance on their families and society and how these two helped fomented their growth as individuals and as a family. More than a journal that chronicles the events of the past, this work is an infusion of the many elements (from the historical to the philosophical) that make and shape the life of the intellect. The following quote by Winston Churchill captures in essence the significance of the Delvas’ work: “The longer you look back, the further you can look forward.” In writing this account of their life and times, the authors have not only paid a literary homage to the people, events and life models that honed them but also bridged the past to the present and, finally, the present to the future.

“The Biography of a New Canadian Family: Volume II” captures the essence of the human spirit and how it strives to remain strong amidst uncertainty and change. The Delvas’ book also offers a fascinating depiction of modern medical history as it relates to changes and developments relevant to the field and, most important of all, as it has been perceived and experienced by the authors themselves.
