Book description
Margaret feels lost and alone, her family uprooted from their beloved Saskatchewan farm and relocated to London, where they're ridiculed for their patched clothes, bare feet and requests for credit at the local store. Only Margaret's unfinished quilt of soaring geese gives her hope-hope that her mother will get out of the hospital with her new baby sister, that her father will find a job, and that they'll soon be able to return to the farm they love.
Set in the era of the First World War in Saskatchewan and Ontario, FLYING GEESE is a beautifully crafted story of courage, joy and resilience in the face of poverty and adversity. Margaret is one of the most compelling female characters to appear in recent children's fiction, made real by an author whose compassion and unsentimental truth shine through on every page.
