Publisher's Summary

Former radio journalist and Canadian resident Elizabeth Hay uses her experience to craft this exquisite tale. It's 1975, and the town of Yellowknife in Canada's Northwest Territories is in the middle of a dispute over a pipeline through the area. The small local radio station who reports on the controversy is undergoing some changes of its own. Hard-edged veteran broadcaster Harry Boyd has taken over as manager, and he has his eye on beautiful young Norwegian transplant Dido.

Great Can-Lit

OK, I have to declare that I am a Canadian first. So the Yellowknife setting and backdrop of the Berger inquiry into the MacKenzie Valley pipeline resonates well for me.
The Canadian content aside, I found this story has this ability to hold my attention and interest ... despite the fact that it moves at a leisurely pace. The characters in the story are complex, which help weave a rich story line.
Overall, I found this book has this je n'est sais quoi quality to it. Definitely worth the credit (especially if you are interested in Canadian literature)

This won an award?

The reading was fine. The book on the other hand is not. I have never been more displeased with an award winning book!

Here's hoping that my pick for next month's audible download is better than this months.
