    Survival in Northern Canada

    Wildwood by Elinore Florence Molly is down on her luck with time running out when a fortuitous inheritance finds its way to her. The only glitch is that she has to live on the land for a year. Where is the land? Way up north in Canada where it gets very very cold indeed! Living in a home built in the early 1920’s might not sound horrible BUT the house has not been lived in for decades, has no indoor plumbing, is without electricity and relies on wood for heating and cooking. Molly has four year old daughter with issues but still…she believes that living in the house is her only recourse so…off she goes. This is a story of hardship in the present interwoven with the diary entries of Molly’s great aunt who actually moved to the land and settled it with her husband nearly 100 years before. The difficulties both faced were often similar and Molly took courage from what she read in her aunt’s journal. I have always liked stories of the past, what it was like to live in such times and how people managed. I once asked my mother what it must be like to be a pioneer and she told me that living in a country with unreliable electricity, water supply and such put me on par with people living in the past…at least part of the time. The story is well told and done in a way that the reader almost feels they are there. The issues faced were real and made me wonder “what if” – I enjoyed the story and was thankful that all worked out for Molly and her daughter in the end. Thank you to NetGalley and Dundurn for the ARC – This is my honest review. 4-5 Stars

    Modern Day Pioneer

    Wildwood quickly transported me into Molly’s world; I was captivated from start to finish. Elinor Florence’s plot which included sound research and attention to detail made the tale even more absorbing. Characters were vivid and description of the landscape was fascinating. This book was a very pleasant read.
