A Book Review on Mrs. Mike: The Story of Katherine Mary Flannigan
Mrs. Mike by Benedict & Nancy Freedman was written in the late '40s and is based on the true life story of Katherine Mary Flannigan, a 16-year-old girl who marries a Canadian mountie. Stationed in the far north of the Canadian wilds, Mrs. Mike meets love, adventure, and sorrow head-on. Besides descriptions of the many rich characters that are part of the lives of Katherine and Mike, the book is full of fascinating information about the beauty, animals and intensity of the North. It's a bittersweet tale that reminds one that there is little else we need in life if we have love.
