From the Back Cover:

In the opening scene of this luminous story, a handsome stranger emerges out of a storm in the midst of the Prairie Dust Bowl, setting off a 30-year rivalry. A finalist for the 2000 Giller Prize, A Student of Weather demonstrates that some accidents in life are note easily forgotten. When Maurice Doves arrives at the Hardy family homestead to study its strange weather patterns, eight-year-old Norma Joyce falls madly in love with him. So does her sister, Lucinda. In painterly prose akin to that of Alice Hoffman and Isabel Allende, Hay describes Norma Joyce's journey from the Prairies of the 1930s to post-war Ottawa and New York. In this celebrated novel, Elizabeth Hay tells a dark, erotic, richly textured story of obsessive love. Narrated by stage and television actor Jennifer Overton, this audio edition of A Student of Weather lays bare an emotional landscape full of surprise and contradiction.
