It is not so surprising that the novel, with its sweeping setting and persevering characters, captivated a weary postwar world. What is striking is that for a cohort of women born much later...became a cherished mainstay of adolescence and beyond.

Synopsis

A classic tale that has enchanted millions of readers worldwide, Mrs. Mike brings the fierce, stunning landscape of the Great North to life—and masterfully evokes the tender, touching moments that bring a man and a woman together forever.

Recently arrived in Calgary, Alberta after a long, hard journey from Boston, sixteen-year-old Katherine Mary O’Fallon never imagined that she could lose her heart so easily—or so completely. Standing over six feet tall, with “eyes so blue you could swim in them,” Mike Flannigan is a well-respected sergeant in the Canadian Mounted Police—and a man of great courage, kindness, and humor. Together, he and his beloved Kathy manage to live a good, honest life in this harsh, unforgiving land—and find strength in a love as beautiful and compelling as the wilderness around them…

This has the feel of the factual books, and happily skips custom-tailored plotting, so that the episodic treatment gives it an acceptable hallmark.
