    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken Place This Godforsaken Place is a well paced work of historical fiction incorporating such well known characters from Canadian and American history as Gabriel Dumont and Annie Oakley as well as Louis Riel and Bill Cody in ways the reader will never su

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken PlaceThe author knows how to keep you hooked I shared in Abigail's excitement as she learned to shoot and enjoyed the twists and turns as she set off on her own It was also nice to learn about the history of Louis Riel Gabriel Dumont and the MétisThe author's ability to use the protagonist Abigail to develop a personal connection between the reader and other characters was the shining light of the book first with Abigail's horse Abe then with Shep January and finally Annie OakleyI would definitely recommend this book


  • Story

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken PlaceA young British woman emigrates with her father to a godforsaken town in Northern Ontario in the 1880s There he contracts tuberculosis and dies ever so slowly forcing her to take over his school teaching job and try to evade a plodding but relentless suitor Through chance she learns she likes to shoot and while practicing her sharpshooting kills a man and comes into a fortune Soon she's headed south across the border to join Cody's Wild West show This a godforsaken mess of a novel While the first two pages were good it went rapidly downhill from there The author obviously did a lot of research into both the history of Canada and the US before she began writing and was determined to stuff every fact relevant or not into the story at the expense of character dialog setting and plot Rather than place her heroine at the centre of exciting events such as The Riel Rebellion she has her read and recount endless newspaper stories a

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken PlaceThis is a uniue book The culture shocked immigrant Abigail could be forgiven if she wanted to be rescued after her father died Instead she sets off on a uest Although the preface in her words suggests that she seeks the values that lead to principled living it seemed to me that she yearned for something out of life than what was available to your average school marm Everyone she encounters along her epic journey from the outlaw cowboy Shep January to the champion sharpshooter Annie Oakley to the Metis military general Gabriel Dumont who she followed in the newspapers contributes to Abigail evolution into someone she had not ever imagined Inspiring stuff

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken PlaceA fantastic historical narrative that brings together Canadian and American historical figures Annie Oakley Gabriel Dumont and Bill Cody with the fictional heroine we all want to be Abigail Peacock Many think that the Riel Rebellion and the Wild West were two separate things but the author does a fantastic job intertwining the two in such a wonderful narrat

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken PlaceI read this book a year or so ago when it first came out The main character Abigail and her moral dilemmas and choices have often come to mind since then The book follows Abigail on her solitary journey both literal and inner from the wilderness of northwestern Ontario to the consumer version of the wild west The Bill Cody Show in New YorkI enjoyed how the author wove the Jesse James Gang Annie Oakley and the Riel Rebellion into Abigail’s story I was inspired to read about the first two To be honest I had hoped for a robust tackling of Riel and Dumont but I can see ho

    This Godforsaken Place review Ø 103 This Godforsaken Placewell I didn't expect to love this as much as I did I'm not a big fan of historical fiction and tend to shy away from it but I'm glad I decided to step out of my comfort zone and give this a try because man it was good it's a slow burn of a story not overly action packed and rather tightly structured but the layout works incredibly well for the plot; the little facts of Canadian history sprinkle
