From the back Cover:

First published in 1956, The Sacrifice marked Adele Wiseman’s debut as a novelist.

A haunting depiction of one family and its often tragic attempts to come to terms with a new life in a new country, The Sacrifice is a moving, almost biblical story of a father possessed by his hope for his only son; of a son who rebels against his father’s ideals, yet sacrifices himself to preserve what his father most prizes; and of a grandson who must reconcile the flaws in his inheritance.

The Sacrifice won the Governor General’s Award for 1956.
