This is a memoir-type book about her journey from a career in academe to the West with her new husband. She obviously made a lot of sacrifices. But I am sure there are still things that she misses about her previous life.
In 1976 Sharon Butala left a promising academic career to marry a cattle rancher in southwest Saskatchewan.
Initially, she was overwhelmed by the isolation of her new life. She struggled to find a connection with the land that encircled her.
Through her dreams and visions, Butala embarks on a spiritual journey to define herself as a woman and as a writer, learning along the way to find a guiding force in Nature.
This book illustrates evocative and moving prose. It is a revelation of self and affirmation of the healing power of Nature that will echo in the mind and heart if only we are open to it.
I loved the book and will buy a copy from ABE books.
