David Rory O'Neill's The Prairie Companions is a beautiful, heartfelt, and breathtaking work of historical fiction, transporting readers to the Canadian wilds in the early years of the twentieth century. A stunning evocation of a unique time and place-and a powerfully moving story of courage, commitment, love, loss, and endurance-this unforgettable saga follows two extraordinary young women from their boarding school in Victorian England to the North American wilderness. For Pat and Clara, young friends and inseparable companions, the search for freedom and a new life together brings undreamed of challenges, uniting them with their indigenous neighbors in a continuing struggle for survival against the unrelenting cruelties of the natural world. O'Neill's The Prairie Companions is a magnificent celebration of self-discovery and the pioneer spirit, and the poignant tale of singular bond of love and loyalty that only grows stronger in the face of nature's grim adversities.
