The Girl in Saskatoon centres on the unsolved murder of Alexandra Wiwcharuk, who died in Saskatoon in 1961. The author, Sharon Butala, doesn't set out to solve the murder but instead takes a different approach in looking at the commonalities in her life and the life of Alexandra, who had been a childhood friend. The book was compelling. The evidence of the murder is provided but it is not the main focus of the book. Butala's writing is much like talking to an old friend. It is conversational with some twists and turns within sentences but it is all pulled together in a way that makes the book fascinating. The portrait painted of Saskatoon as a city and Saskatchewan as a province sets the stage for a murder that still remains unsolved and, while officially still an open case, closed. I really enjoyed this book and I read very little non-fiction. The focus is on the life of Alexandra allowing the author to be true to her story.
