A moving love story set in the Canadian wilderness, Mrs. Mike is a classic tale that has enchanted millions of readers worldwide. It brings the fierce, stunning landscape of Canada to life and tenderly evokes the love that blossoms between Sergeant Mike Flannigan and beautiful young Katherine Mary O'Fallon.

Recently arrived in Calgary, Alberta, Canada, after a long, hard journey from Boston, sixteen-year-old Katherine Mary O'Fallon never imagined that she could lose her heart so easily or so completely.

Mike Flannigan, standing over six feet tall, with "eyes so blue you could swim in them," is a well-respected sergeant in the Canadian Mounted Police and a man of great courage, kindness, and humor. Together, he and his beloved Kathy manage to live a good, honest life in this harsh, unforgiving land and to find strength in a love as beautiful and compelling as the wilderness around them.

Here's what I wrote about this read in 2008: "Good, simple, heartwarming tale of early settlers / pioneers in the Canadian wilderness. Sargent Mike Flannigan; now he was a man to love. Written in ~1940's, with modern sequels subsequently read." ( )

This was recommended to me because I liked [a:Bess Streeter Aldrich|87735|Bess Streeter Aldrich|https://images.gr-assets.com/authors/1238917856p2/87735.jpg]. It doesn't have the same quality as hers, the characters don't step off the page, the community doesn't live. I think it's meant to chronicle personal growth but, while it does a good job imagining struggle, it doesn't capture it as well as, say [a:C S Lewis|18307282|C S Lewis|https://s.gr-assets.com/assets/nophoto/user/u_50x66-632230dc9882b4352d753eedf9396530.png]. The best way to describe it would to be to say that it is the Canadian version of [b:Christy|35879889|Christy|Catherine Marshall|https://images.gr-assets.com/books/1507060335s/35879889.jpg|3158544].



It was also sold to me (by someone who was very unclear) as a non-fiction memoir. I would say that there was little evidence of mountains of research so, to be safe, I'd call it a historical fiction. ( )

In the early 1900s, Katherine (Kathy) is sent to Calgary, Alberta to live with her uncle due to her health, where she meets RCMP Mike. Although Kathy is only 16, they get married and move further north – where there aren’t many white women, and life is much more primitive than Kathy is used to.

Apparently this is based on a real person – I only found that out by looking at a few other reviews. I listened to the audio, which wavered in and out on holding my attention (or not). It was ok. Some parts I liked, but overall, ok. Had a hard time with a couple of parts about injured animals. I’m not sure I particularly liked any of the characters. Except for one secondary character (due to the unusual name), I tended to get those secondary characters mixed up. One of the good things, though, were descriptions of hardships encountered: loss, fire... ( )

Loved this book when I read it as a high school freshman. Definitely worth a re-read as that is an embarrassing number of years ago..... ( )

This story is about sixteen year old Katherine Mary O’Fallon, a 16 year old Irish girl from Boston in 1907, and the man she falls in love with, Sargent Mike Flannigan, a hero who is handsome, chivalrous, strong and fearless. Kathy is suffering from pleurisy and is sent alone to Canada to recover at her uncle's home in Calgary. Mike is a Canadian Mounted Policeman, who falls in love with her and takes her to the Northwest Territories of the Canadian wilderness. We follow along with Kathy and Mike and witness their life in the harsh and beautiful land, which includes isolation, snow, fire, death, bears, and even deadly mosquitoes. Kathy and Mike learn respect for the Indians, their beliefs and their way of life. It's also a timeless love story.

I first read this book when I was twelve and, of course, fell madly in love with Mike. I definitely wanted to grow up and marry a Canadian Mountie and live in a cabin in the wilderness. (Ironically, I married someone named Mike, and lived in Alaska for three years but it just wasn't the same). Reading the book fifty years later is a bit disheartening for me. I saw Mr. and Mrs. Mike in a much more jaundiced way. Of course, since the book was published in 1947, the attitude and language with reference to Indians and women might offend many readers. Over the years there has been some indications that the “true” story was highly fictionalized by the Freedman's.

Nevertheless, it remains one of the most memorable books I've ever read. I needed to pull out some tissues a couple of time. I still think of Mrs. Mike as one of the first books that contributed to my lifelong love of reading and of historical fiction. I have a shelf called “nostalgia” and it's the perfect place to put this gem. The book was “based” on a true story and doesn't claim to be non-fiction. It's love story that emphasizes what friendship, community, family and love are all about. ( )

When little things are so important, it’s because there aren’t any big ones.
She had had sorrow: her family, all her children, gone. But death does not stand at the end of life, it is all through it. It is the fear of losing, the knowledge of losing that makes love tender.
