A Clear Eye

Rated 3.00/5 based on 1 reviews
In the early 1940s, on a northern Canadian homestead, Callie grows up fast. Her innocence, fostered by isolation and her mother’s determination to force Callie into the outdated pattern of Lillian’s own pre-war youth, is the catalyst of a family feud that tests all Callie’s growing strength as she struggles for the freedom to be herself.

Review by: Barbara Gordon on May 30, 2012 :
Beautiful writing with a crystal-clear observation of nature and the passing seasons, combined with a gritty, unflinching view of life on an isolated farm and how both shape a sensitive child. I was reminded of a tougher-minded L M Montgomery.
The characteres are true to life and well-realised, with allowance made for Callie's perspective on them, both clear and harsh.
