About the Book

Over one summer at her grandparents’ house in the South Saskatchewan River valley, a young girl struggles to decipher the mysterious language of adults—and attempts to figure out the relationship between her great-uncle Aloetius and Cherry, a woman whose absence defined Aloetius’s life.

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
