About the book:
A moving love story set in the Canadian wilderness, Mrs. Mike is a classic tale that has enchanted millions of readers worldwide. It brings the fierce, stunning landscape of the Great North to life-and tenderly evokes the love that blossoms between Sergeant Mike Flannigan and beautiful young Katherine Mary O'Fallon.
I loved this book. I was probably 12 the first time I read this novel. I read it many, many times as I was growing up.
I loved the story of Kathy and Mike. It's not the best written book, but it's delightful and entertaining. Kathy goes to northern Canada as a young, innocent girl and falls in love with a rugged Mountie. The books shares their story of love and hardship in an unforgiving wilderness: friendship and loss; childbirth and death. How much of it is actually true has been debated. Regardless, it's a delightful adventure.
The Freedmans have written a couple of sequels: The Search for Joyful and Kathy Little Bird.
