Take the time to share a favorite book with a friend. Good things are so much better when shared with two. One of my favorite books is Mrs. Mike, by Benedict and Nancy Freedman.Here is the book description from Amazon:
‘Mrs. Mike’ is a love story, a true story; the story of Katherine Mary O’Fallon, a sixteen year-old Irish girl from Boston, and Sergeant Mike Flannigan of the Canadian Mounted Police who meet at her uncle’s ranch in Alberta, Canada where she is sent to recover from pleurisy. They meet, they court, they marry and, following Mike’s orders, move to Hudson’s Hope far into the interior of Alberta.
But it is more than a love story between two people: it is also a love story of the land and animals, of the beavers and the ice, the northern lights and the fires, of whooping cough and whiskey running. It is a love story of the First Peoples and their struggles, the immigrants and their hopes and all the people who came and went through Mike and Kathy’s lives.
I’ve read this book at least five times and love it every time.
I’m always looking for book recommendations. What’s one of your favorites?
