Athabasca Seasons is a warm collection of short stories that pays 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 as well, from her early years as a teacher, to her later years of marriage, the devastating loss of her child, and the rewards of retirement.
Colouring her memories is the beautifully evoked setting of the Athabasca River region – the raging waters of spring and the wheat in the fields. Audrey is an inspiration, confronting her past with both courage and humour.
