About the Book
Set in the Peace River country in the early 1900s the novel is complex and layered, with multiple narrators and interwoven stories. The multiple narrators collapse time with precision and ease and help to pace the story, a mystical tale of a young girl straddling two worlds in ways she is not always aware of. The Raft Baby’s voice, heard directly at the beginning and end, is vital, true, and clear and she validates the novel’s history and circumstances in the gentlest of ways.
