Talented storytelling from this French Canadian author. Born in Manitoba, Canadian central prairie province, this novel focuses on life in the northern region of the province. Creative and hospitable mother, Luzina, instills a love for education in her eleven children even as she negotiates with the provincial government for a school for her children on their own island.
Exceptional in details and ability to draw the reader into the era and area.
