Description

At the age of seventy-one, Perpetua believes that love is a thing no longer worth worrying about. But when her niece, Myra, arrives in search of the truth about a mother she never knew, Perpetua must consider again the profound love of her past.

Jacqueline Baker writes with confidence and unvarnished honesty, and she has the rare ability to make the familiar brilliant and finely understood. Hers are universal themes: the tensions of family life; relationships defined by what isn’t said, rather than what is; and our connection to a past that may be real or imagined.

Praise for A Hard Witching

“What Alistair MacLeod has done for the Maritimes, Jacqueline Baker has done for the Sand Hills region of southwestern Saskatchewan. It is insightful and accurate in its depiction of the beauty and menace of the landscape and of the brutality and tenderness of its inhabitants.” —Diane Schoemperlen
