Editorial Reviews

Review

“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.”New York Times

“This is a book the reader will be unable to put down until the last page is read.”Library Journal

Mrs. Mike…is the story of the start of young love, its growth to maturity, and its acceptance of a dangerous, hard, but enthralling life. Its level of sheer entertainment is extremely high.”Los Angeles Herald-Express

I'm not the first woman who claims that this is the book that made her fall in love with reading. I came across it in my mother's bookshelf maybe 50 yrs ago, when I was about 11, and I don't believe anyone saw me for the next few days as I plowed my way through it.
Mrs. Mike is the love story of Katherine Mary, a young Irish girl from Boston, and Sergeant Mike of the Canadian Mounties, under whose supervision falls all of the great Canadian wilderness. Katherine Mary comes from a world of privilege and comfort. When she moves with her husband to the North Pole region, let's say it took a bit of adjustment. It's a romance, an adventure, a coming-of-age, a tragedy, and a history. Give it to your niece or daughter or granddaughter. Give it to your sister, your friend, your neighbor. I guarantee, they'll all love it.

Like most other reviewers, I first read this book as a 13-year-old, 30 years ago. I laughed, I cried, I fell in love with Sgt. Mike Flannigan. Many years later, I was lucky enough to receive a first edition copy from my husband's family and it remains a treasure in my personal library. This book made a lifetime impression on me as a young girl to love and respect nature and native folklore, as well as to find a mate who is also my best friend! Highly recommended!

Format: Mass Market Paperback
Nearly 40 years ago, as a 15 year old girl, I took this book from my parent's bookcase on a cold, Sunday in March. I held out little hope because it was my mother's book, but I was bored and had run out of library books. From the opening page I was enthralled. I read all afternoon and into the evening. The love story of Kathy and Mike appealed to my young, romantic heart. But as I moved into the middle of the book, I missed the romance and found it less exciting. Their married life was not as romantic as their courtship. I read it again twenty years later and saw a different book, one about a maturing marriage and the problems it faced. It seemed much more relevant as a 35 year old mother. I read it again a couple years ago and saw even more in the story; it became a much richer novel each time I read it.
This book was a wise purchase by my mother in 1947 for it has continued to live, and grow. As a girl it was a love story, 40 years later it is the portrait of a marriage. I found a copy in a used book, just like my mother's. I will read it again.

Format: Hardcover
I first read this book 30 years ago, at the age of 10. Although I mentioned it to agemates throughout the years, no one else had read it. I recommended it highly, but my compatriots of the time hadn't a great deal of interest in reading.
Imagine my surprise when I mentioned to a family friend 30 years older than me that it was my favorite book of all time, and she launched into a very accurate synopsis of it! She too had read it as a young girl and had thoroughly enjoyed it. I had spent so much time thinking I was the only one who had ever read it, it almost seemed like a private gift to me, but one which I had wanted to share with someone else for so long!
I was so pleased to read the positive reviews by other readers. Now I know I am not the only person who was so very touched by this story that I have reread it at least often enough to know by heart whole passages!

Format: Paperback
My friend read this book a couple weeks ago because our Language Arts teacher recommended it to her and if a teacher recomends it she has to read it because she's kind of teacher's pet. Anyways she told me that I absolutely had to read it. It looked really corny and boring- I mean come on I'm thirteen!- so I thought of every possible reason to not have yet started it. But I was really bored one day and just picked it up and started to read... and read... and read... and read... and- you get the point. I read until I finished. I stayed up until four in the morning on school nights for three days!!! Unlike most people that wrote a review I just read this book about a week ago and now am trying to get my mom to read it also. I love horror. Absolutely love it. R.L. Stine is my role model okay? Well this book was definitly a change. I cried for over two hours the night I finished it- my pillow was soaked- then I cried the next day talking about it to my friend. This is my favorite book of all time but I don't understand whether or not this is a true story because in the front it says that the story is completely fictional but in About The Author it says that Katherine Mary Flannigan helped to so I really just don't understand! Is it true or not!?!

Format: Paperback
This young girl overcomes whatever life has to throw at her. She was--and still is my ideal. I first read this book when I was about 10 and re-read it every year or so. My original book was recently lost during a move and I now have to have another. As I read, I became this young girl and seemed to experience her love, heartache, and adventure. It is difficult to read when you are crying so hard you can't see the page. I have read this so often that I now start crying pages before I should. This is a life-learning book that should be required reading in middle school or even high school. Normally, I like books, I cherish some books but this book will always be my favorite love. I wanted to be Katherine Mary Flannigan. I only have 1 daughter and her name is Kathryn.
