Good Book Day
Mrs. Mike by Benedict and Nancy Freeman has been on my to-read list for about a decade, and I finally read it and am glad I did. It's a love story set in Northern Canada in the early 1900s. Katherine has pleurisy and is sent from Boston to her uncle in Canada to help with her condition. She meets Sergeant Mike and they fall in love. He takes her away to his remote outposts. Together they live through vicious nature and heartache, but each incident eventually draws them closer together in love.
There are some parts that could make a squeamish stomach queasy with the worse side of nature, and there are definitely parts that will make you cry. But the overall story is compelling enough to keep you reading until the last page.
Check it out and have a good book day.
