Publisher's Summary

Recently arrived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, after a long, hard journey from Boston, 16-year-old Katherine Mary O'Fallon never imagined that she could lose her heart so easily or so completely. Standing over six feet tall, with "eyes so blue you could swim in them", Mike Flannigan is a well respected sergeant in the Canadian Mounted Police and a man of great courage, kindness, and humor. Together, he and his beloved Kathy manage to live a good, honest life in this harsh, unforgiving land and to find strength in a love as beautiful and compelling as the wilderness around them.

What the Critics Say

"Only once in a long while does the lover of books come across a novel like this one. Mrs. Mike is an unforgettable story." (Boston Herald)
"It is the personality of Sgt. Mike blowing through this account like a clear breeze that gives it a refreshing quality. Everyone's dream of a cop, he was also a romantic and understanding husband, the fondest of fathers, a man of honor and humor." (The New York Times)

How could I have missed this all these years?

This is a riveting book, a great one to listen to. The descriptions of the Canadian Northwest and living conditions are in great and realistic detail. Although it has some aspects of a novel for Young Adults, the complexities of the life and the ordeals faced by the main characters take it beyond that genre. Highly recommended.

Reread from highschool

I love this book! I cry every time I read it or listen to it. I have read it in book form at least 15 times. It is real and touching and a glimpse of what life was like in the Canadian North at the turn of the century. It is well written and very enjoyable.
