Ever been bored? Ever sought another book to read? That's what happened one wet, Saturday morning when I was trapped at home, rain outside without a video game in sight. That's when I came across the print version of this novel on Mum's coffee table in the lounge- I loved reading about Elizabeth who, despite her cultured East Coast upbringing was so unprepared for a teaching position on the Canadian frontier. Yet, despite the constant hardships, she loves the children and overcomes challenges. Even finding love! A great novels for both girls and guys to read.
