Summary (From the publisher):

For Morag Gunn, growing up in a small Canadian prairie town is a toughening process -- putting distance between herself and a world that wanted no part of her. But in time, the aloneness that had once been forced upon her becomes a precious right -- relinquished only in her overwhelming need for love. Again and again, Morag tests her strength against the world, learning to live and love exactly the way she wants to.
