Overview

FIFTEEN-YEAR OLD LESIA can hardly bear it. She and her family must leave their beloved Baba in their Ukrainian hometown in order to flee to Canada. Dreaming of fields of wheat, wealth and security, Lesia looks forward to a life in Canada, free from poverty and rumours of war. But the 160 acres of hardscrabble prairie look nothing like the wheat fields of her dreams. And even though there is no fighting in her new country, the First World War follows them there.

SHORTLISTED FOR
The Manitoba Young Readers’ Choice Award, The Snow Willow Award and The Rocky Mountain Book Award
