From the Inside Flap:

From the acclaimed Giller Prize Finalist and Governor General's Award Winner: a delightfully funny and charming second novel about Canada's smallest town.
Life in Winnipeg didn't go as planned for Knute and her daughter. But living back in Algren with her parents and working for the longtime mayor, Hosea Funk, has its own challenges: Knute finds herself mixed up with Hosea's attempts to achieve his dream of meeting the Prime Minister -- even if that
means keeping the town's population at an even 1500. Bringing to life small-town Canada and all its larger-than-life characters, A Boy of Good Breeding is a big-hearted, hilarious novel about finding out where you belong.

From the Back Cover:

Life in the big city just wasn't working out for Knute and her four-year-old daughter. So they've come back home to the prairie backwater of Algren to live with Knute's parents. Before long, the easygoing single mom gets mixed up in Mayor Hosea Funk's scheme for meeting the Prime Minister (;whom he believes to be his mysterious cowboy father);. All they have to do is ensure that Algren's population stays at an even 1,500, thus winning the contest for smallest town in Canada. But that's no easy task — what with folks getting married, women having triplets, and the unexpected return of Knute's old boyfriend Max.
