Rilla loved her home in a small farming community on the windblown Alberta prairies. Surrounded by a passel of fun-loving cousins and siblings, Rilla reveled in the joy of carefree moments and shivered through frightening ones: a night raider, an angry bull, a hailstorm and blizzard, and a runaway ’56 jalopy.
Rilla endured her share of growing pains, and the public school she attended tested not just the three Rs but her character too. Guided by watchful, loving parents, Rilla thrived despite her mistakes.
Running through these rollicking stories from the author’s childhood are shining threads of love and laughter, warm family relationships, faith, gratitude, and God’s care. Prairie Child is a book the whole family will enjoy.
