    This Godforsaken Place review ↠ 100 This Godforsaken Placethis book has been out for a month and there are still no reviews for it which is pretty telling i read an arc of it last fall so i'm drawing upon my long ago memories of it and the notes and foldy pages in my copy but it didn't really leave much of an impression on me and now i learn that my inability to review it has hindered erica in her professional life which makes me even guilty feeling that's what i wrote three months ago after erica made me feel guilty and i STILL managed to make zero progress with this review many of the books that have been awaiting reviews on this here windowsill have been review procrastinated because i didn't feel i had anything to say about them this one than most and now finally there IS a review on here for the book which mirrors some of my own thoughts there's nothing wrong with this bo

    This Godforsaken Place review ↠ 100 This Godforsaken Placei reviewed this book in ARC form here but i was told that it had changed significantly before its final published version which of course made me feel bad because i am someone who feels bad so i read it again and here we are it definitely has changed from the version i read and it's somewhat interesting but it turns out that the things that were changed weren't really the things i personally had issues with however i will say that it is much easier to write a review for a book when it is fresh in my mind than it is trying to cobble something together months and months after the factit starts out fine we are introduced to abigail peacock; a narrator very reminiscent of the gruffcranky narrator from True Grit and the novel takes the same shape an older woman looking back on her life and adventures with the perspective of a

    This Godforsaken Place review ↠ 100 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 suspect Obviously meticulously researched it is penned in the voice of an independent educated female protagonist — Abigail Peacock — who discovers over the course of the novel that she desires to escape the predictability and monotony of her new world small town home to blaze her own trail and experience something truly incredibleThe trials victories and failures in Abigail's journey of self discovery and the people she meets along the way make for a wonderful journey for the reader as well I highly recommend it to anyone interested in North American history tales of self discovery or accounts of wonderful journeys across lands unkn

    This Godforsaken Place review ↠ 100 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 ↠ 100 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 about them Dialog is forsaken in favour of tedious

    This Godforsaken Place review ↠ 100 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 ↠ 100 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 sprinkled in at times tend to feel rather like a nonfiction book but they were interesting enoug
