More About This Book

Overview

The Mountie's Girl begins at the moment of the heroine's birth and details her life over twenty-four years. For several years Lorie and her family lived in RCMP detachment homes, her father being an RCMP officer. Their living conditions in these unique situations influenced her early years. Her parents and teachers recognized her special and natural artistic gifts. With encouragement she went on to study art and then architecture at university. There were many highs and lows as she grew up into a beautiful young woman. Detailed are her accomplishments and rewards, her studies and travels in Europe, and her exciting time working for an architectural firm in London, England. She saw her future in a promising career as an architect and artist. Her Christian family was proud of her and her brother, both excelling in their chosen fields of academia. The future seemed bright, but was destroyed one summer evening. "I first met Ruth Lee-Knight and her Mountie husband Jack at St.
John's Anglican Cathedral in Saskatoon. We learned of their creative and energetic daughter Lorie Gaye who had been doing architectural studies in Athens, Italy and London before tragedy struck. It has taken Ruth twenty-six years to find enough courage to share with the world this tremendous tribute to Lorie. At the same time she has shared her faith in Christ as the foundation upon which she and her family have been able to cope with the many trials in their lives. Ruth hopes this will be an encouragement to others who have encountered similar tragedies." The Reverend Canon Howard Green B.A., M.A., B Th., D.D. About the Author: Ruth Lee-Knight has been published in a number of anthologies and magazines including Folklore, Saskatchewan History and Folklore Society Inc., The Quarterly, and RCMP Veterans' Association. Her historical non-fiction book When the Second Man Was a Woman has continued to sell since its 2004 launch. Ruth and her husband, Jack, a retired member of the RCMP, divide their time between their home in Calgary and their lake home in the Meadow Lake Provincial Park of Saskatchewan.
