Sophie Ware, a kindergarten teacher in Buffalo Jump, Alberta, is just lonely enough to accept an outrageous proposal of marriage from her farmhand, Alexander Bresnyachuk, a second-generation Ukrainian whose main desire is to continue working Sophie's land. As the two are drawn closer to each other's friends and relativesand to each otherSophie is forced to confront the obsession of those around her with a shadowy, almost legendary figure from Alexander's past. This is an impressive novel, amusing and touching by turns, with likable characters, believable dialogue, and clear, brisk prose. Best of all, it has insightful things to say about love, family, and friendship that transcend its rural Canadian setting. Lonnie Beene, West Texas State Univ. Lib., Canyon
