Katy may be considered an adult in her era, but she has a lot of growing up to do. Things didn’t turn out her way—any way she wanted—with either education and career first, followed maybe by a suitable husband. Stuck with a quiet man she admires but isn’t sure she can love, she reluctantly follows him out to the prairie, along with Robert’s partner and his wife, Dan and Ellen, who is used to living without many amenities. Katy meets the neighbors, Ukrainians, and makes friends, such as she can. With her letters to her sister filled with angst, Maggie announces a visit, a cause of even deeper rift between Robert and Katy as Katy wants to offer comfort that simply isn’t available. It takes some deeper sorrow for Katy and Robert to face themselves and their relationship and decide whether they can make their new life work.
Told from Robert and Katy’s sides, this lovely story shows the reader both joy and hardship in a long-gone era, on the great western prairies of Canada. I loved it and recommend it for a sweet afternoon read.
Due to an unfortunate incident, Katy’s reputation is unjustly ruined, but her cousin, Robert, comes to her rescue. Katy feels her only choice is to go home and humiliate her parents or to agree to Robert’s marriage proposal.
They find themselves in new and unsettled land and Katy comes to realize that her misfortune turns into what she’d always dreamed for.
Ms. McGregor tells a beautiful story painted against the Canadian wilderness. Her character development and writing skills holds the reader’s interest well beyond the last page. I enjoyed Acres of Dreams along with Autumn Dreams which introduces Katy’s sister, Maggie. I’m looking forward to more stories in this series.
