This was my favorite FL as well. The writing was so beautiful and the characters so interesting.

Review written!! Thank you for the opportunity to participate in this book club. This was a book that I would have NEVER picked up to read on my own. It has broadened my reading and I thank you for that.

I thought this was a beautifully written story but the unrelenting tragedy that befell this family was depressing.

The permalink address keeps disapearing when I try to copy it, I'm sure there is a simple step I'm missing, but I just copied my review and am pasting it here. Thanks for the good read!
Posted 09/03/09: Once I was into the story and invested in the characters I really enjoyed this novel, but it did take me quite a few pages to become hooked on the story. Shandi Mitchell does a wonderful job of creating the landscape of the late 1930's unsettled Candian land and the hardships faced by immigrants settling there. It gave me a great respect for people who were willing to travel so far to such harsh conditions to find a better life while also having to learn a new language and face prejudice from neighbors due to their differences. This would be a great book club read since there are so many areas to discuss and debate. The note from the author at the end makes the story even more personal. Overall a great read!
