This was a beautiful book. I'm sad that I finished reading it. It won the Govenor General's award.

The story is of a young teacher in the remote Prairies during the 1930's. It tells of her influence on her pupils and how they affected her. Beautifully written with deep insightns that are often poignant in their innocence.

I would recommend this slim book to anyone with a passion for the way things once were and to the lessons life can teach us.
