Dollybird, by Anne Lazurko

Thrown into the purgatory of a bleak prairie landscape as unforgiving as her mother, twenty-year-old Newfoundlander Moira Burns is certain she will rise above the locals of Ibsen, Saskatchewan. Until the reasons for her flight west become clear. Until she is befriended by a prostitute and courted by a ‘half breed’. Until she becomes the "dollybird" of superstitious Irish Catholic homesteader, Dillan Flaherty, which means either housekeeper or whore or both in the west of 1906. Determined to find redemption in the midst of derision and to find joy despite uncertainty, Moira faces impossible choices with consequences beyond anything she can imagine. 2013
