Two young Saskatchewan sisters, Lucinda and Norma Joyce Hardy, immediately fall in love with Maurice Dove, the charming weather observer sent from Ottawa who visits their family farm during a 1938 storm. That meeting changes the sisters' lives forever--introducing jealousy, romantic rivalry, and an unexpected pregnancy. Jennifer Overton brings a delicate touch to the portraits of the two sisters, making every thought and action into something essential to the story of their lives. This character study, built on broken dreams, loss, and sadness, captures the Hardy sisters and their elusive love in a well-crafted, often challenging drama. The novel was shortlisted for the Giller Prize, and this audio production was broadcast on CBC Radio. J.A.S.
