A young librarian in the 1950s marries a minister and leaves all she knows to live in a tiny town in northern Saskatchewan—a place so remote from us today that it might as well be in medieval Morocco. She faces challenges with a charming, low-key aplomb—living without conveniences such as running water, measuring up to previous esteemed ministers’ wives and learning to play the organ with no talent or training. Like her, we grow to appreciate the villagers with their eccentricities, odd lingo and the certainty that comes with living in a place one’s whole life.

This is a wonderful story of a young wife and her husband (a reverend) and their adventures in small town Saskatchewan. Although I suspect it is in parts auto-biographical it makes for a wonderful heart warming and hilarious read.

My first boss at the Vancouver Public Library wrote this book. She died in 2009 and will be missed by many people.

When I read these words I hear her sweet voice telling outlandish stories.

A unknown Canadian classic.
