Set in Saskatchewan and the Ottawa Valley, this finely honed tale begins in 1929 with a small-town school teacher helping an underprivileged child learn to read--all under the watchful eye of the school's domineering, enigmatic principal. From there, the story takes listeners on a mesmerizing journey probing the roots of obsession and revealing how the pains and passions of childhood follow us into adulthood and beyond.

What an enthralling story, admittedly sometimes a bit weird in the relationship department but the author is a fantastic story teller.
The narrative jumps from current to past, seemingly in the middle of a sentence. Switching from the aunt to the niece to stories of past and current happenings in both their lives.
It was really the wonderful storytelling that I appreciated in this book, the story was interesting and the characters well developed but it's the way with words that the author has and the way she puts the story together that really appeal.
