One of the few things I’m thankful for growing up in small town Wisconsin, is that I learned to love nature and appreciate running in the cold on snowy icy trails. ❄️. Lovely 10 mile run in Forest Park with few human sightings and a chance to clear my head after one crazy week. #portland#wildwood#forestpark
🌿 Happy Friday all! I've just posted a new review for Wildwood by Elinor Florence that I received from @dundurnpress. It comes out February 24th!! Go check out my review! Link in my bio 🎉😄
A single mother. An abandoned farmhouse. An epic battle with the northern wilderness.
Broke and desperate, Molly Bannister accepts the ironclad condition laid down in her great-aunt’s will: to receive her inheritance, Molly must spend one year in an abandoned, off-the-grid farmhouse in the remote backwoods of northern Alberta. If she does, she will be able to sell the farm and fund her four-year-old daughter’s badly needed medical treatment.
With grim determination, Molly teaches herself basic homesteading skills. But her greatest perils come from the brutal wilderness itself, from blizzards to grizzly bears. Will she and her child survive the savage winter? Will she outsmart the idealist young farmer who would thwart her plan to sell the farm? Not only their financial future, but their very lives are at stake. Only the journal written by Molly's courageous great-aunt, the land’s original homesteader, inspires her to struggle on.
