Authors: Baker, Jacqueline
Publisher: HarperCollins Publishers
Jack and Lavinia work the land around the Sand Hills—are, in fact, foolish for wide-open spaces. But Lavinia’s not convinced about all of the space, about what it means to be married, and how the past haunts her husband.
Jacqueline Baker writes with confidence and unvarnished honesty, and she has the rare ability to make the familiar brilliant and finely understood. Hers are universal themes: the tensions of family life; relationships defined by what isn’t said, rather than what is; and our connection to a past that may be real or imagined.

Praise for A Hard Witching
“What Alistair MacLeod has done for the Maritimes, Jacqueline Baker has done for the Sand Hills region of southwestern Saskatchewan. It is insightful and accurate in its depiction of the beauty and menace of the landscape and of the brutality and tenderness of its inhabitants.” —Diane Schoemperlen
