This review is for A Countess from Canada: A Story of Life in the Backwoods. I found it to be an enjoyable, easy-to-read, morally clean romance that takes place in the 1800's in the Canadian wilds. The main character is Katharine, a young woman with a lot on her shoulders who runs a trading post in a remote area of Canada. (Place names include Akiminski Island, Mattagami River, Abbitibbi River, Hannah Bay, Lake Temiskaming, Fort Garry, Marble Island [800 miles away], Maxokama, Seal Cove, Roaring Water Portage). Detailed characterizations of the local people.
Subtract one star if you are not fascinated by realistically portrayed details of the rigors of Canadian pioneer life. Also note that this work reflects the prevailing views about the native people of the time (dirty, thieves). I found the story line to be little unbelievable and predictable at times, hence the four stars.
