Growing up on a modest family farm in rural Ontario, Jane Ovington was never the delecate flower that her mother might have imagined her to be. Instead, Jane was a rough and tumble tomboy who was known to enjoy time in the barn, skipping school for an impromptu hunt, or mixing it up with the boys who dared to pick a fight.
As the years passed, Jane roused less rabble and opted to marry her childhood sweetheart, build a home, raise a family. and eventually transition into the off-farm workforce. She did this without letting go of her cheerful and humourous personality, and without forgetting her cherished family roots and childhood lessons of a simpler time.
Plain Jane preserves and shares these stories. Whether viewed through a local history lens, or as a lookback at the Ovington family, these recollections are informative, entertaining, and they offer something for everyone.
