Content descriptions

Summary, etc.:
Broke and desperate, Molly Bannister accepts the ironclad condition laid down in her great-aunt's will: to receive her inheritance, Molly must spend one year in an abandoned, off-the--grid farmhouse in the remote backwoods of northern Alberta. If she does, Milly will be able to sell the farm and fund her four-year-old daughter's badly needed medical treatment. Withe grim determination, Molly teaches herself basic homesteading skills. But her greatest perils come from the brutal wilderness itself, from blizzards to grizzly bears. Will she and her child survive the savage winter? Will she outsmart the idealist young farmer who would thwart her plan to sell the farm? Not only their financial future, but their very lives are at stake. Only the journal written by Molly's courageous great-aunt, the land's original homesteader, inspires her to struggle on.
