Author: Audrey Weldon Reid
Synopsis:Athabasca Seasonsis a warm collection of short stories that pay tribute to the comfort of family and the power of nature. Audrey Reid brings to life memories, both joyous and painful, of a childhood spent on a farm in Depression-era Alberta. She explores her adult life, from her early years as a teacher, to her later years of marriage, to the devastating loss of her child, and the rewards of retirement. Colouring her memories is the beautifully evoked setting of the Athabasca River region. Audrey is an inspiration, confronting her past with both courage and humour.
