I grabbed this off the Library shelf -it sounded like a good story. I was pleasantly surprised! Gabrielle Roy is a wonderful writer - I found this book hard to put down. Set on the Candian Prairies in the 1930s and told from the perspective of a schoolteacher - it was lovely. It's under 200 pages - not overly long. I will be reading more books by Gabrielle Roy.
