Product description

Review

The plucky single mother heroine of Wildwood survives extreme weather, wildlife, and rural, off-the-grid isolation in northern Alberta to tell a charming and inspiring story that charts her transformation from milquetoast urban accountant to empowered, self-sufficient farmwoman. Also heartwarming: the old-timey baking – recipes included – and the touch of romance. (Kim Moritsugu, author of The Oakdale Dinner Club)

Elinor Florence’s love and respect for the ‘beautiful savage land’ of northern Alberta comes through loud and clear. Follow Molly and her great-aunt on their homesteading adventures and risk losing your heart to the wilds! (Alice Zorn, author of Five Roses)

Taking this journey with Molly was exciting and delightful. (Literary Hoarders)

Offer this to city slickers dreaming of a simpler life and readers interested in unspoiled natural beauty. (Booklist)

What a glorious novel! With flawed and relatable characters, gorgeous description, and a loving but realistic look at a difficult lifestyle, Wildwood satisfies on every level. Through Molly’s modern eyes, we see the fortitude of pioneers in a refreshing way — and see our comfortable and rushed lives in a new way as well. Uplifting and thought-provoking, this is a novel to savor. (Sarah Sundin, award-winning author of The Sea Before Us and the Waves of Freedom series)

Wildwood not only captures the quintessential Canadian struggle against the elements with extraordinary energy, it illuminates what lies in the marrow of life: love, legacy, and the spirit to endure. This is homesteading with high stakes, and Molly Bannister is a heroine who pulls us into her heart and takes us on a journey into our own notions of resilience and courage. (Jennifer Manuel, author of The Heaviness of Things That Float)

A delight from start to finish and it offers a fascinating look at homesteading in the Peace River region. (Susan Juby, award-winning author of The Republic of Dirt)

Wildwood satisfies on every level … Uplifting and thought-provoking, this is a novel to savor. (Sarah Sundin’s Book Beat)

A wonderful read. (Lost in the Rain)

Molly’s experience of her great-aunt’s way of life is so vividly described that readers will appreciate the strength and courage of past generations and feel grateful for the safeties and conveniences of modern life. The book will have particular appeal to readers interested in early-20th-century social history. (Publishers Weekly)
