    A place called winter

    Difficult to get into,gave up but went back later. Found it well written and interesting about the pioneers who settled Canada.Sensitive dealing with homosexuality hard work and the satisfaction of accomplishment. Glad i went back to read it through.

    A worthy historical fiction

    Sensitively written, beautiful yet precise prose, seamless environmental detail, and characters who are credible, A Place Called Winter is an historical novel worth a reader's attention and time. Set in late 19th century Saskatchewan, Patrick Gale chronicles the difficult journey, both psychological and temporal, of Harry Cane (an actual ancestor of the author's). Cane, who flees England upon threat of exposure and possible hanging for his homosexuality, leaves behind a wife and daughter to homestead in Canada. He, like so many, is lured by promises of land for the taking, of bountiful harvest, and security. Yet Cane does prevail despite flimflammery, rape, devastating illness, heartbreak and bone-shattering labour. The story is one of quiet triumph, of fluid relationships, and acceptance. My one quibble with the story is the author's lack of experience with Canadian cold. When Cane indentures himself to a farmer in Moose Jaw, he sleeps in a shed, without heat, throughout the winter, in an area which could see temperatures plummet as low as -36C. There is a high probability he would freeze to death. And there is no mention of the difficulty of travel in winter with blizzard conditions, or of spring thaw and the sucking mud. However, beyond that truly minor complaint, A Place Called Winter is an engaging and worthy read. Recommended.
