Description

Winner of the WILLA Award for Historical Fiction. Shortlisted for the SaskPower Fiction Award, Saskatchewan Book Awards 2014. In 1906, Twenty-year-old Moira, banished to Saskatchewan because of her unwed pregnancy, must come to terms with her pioneer environment, her dodgy new acquaintances and her employment as a "dolly-bird" with a volatile young homesteader. Scattered through with birth, death, and the violent potential of both man and the elements, Dollybird excavates the small mercies which come to mean more than they should on a prairie peopled with characters struggling under a huge sky that waits, not so quietly, for them to fail.
