Housekeeper-or whore?

Twenty-year-old Moira, the daughter of a Newfoundland doctor, dreams of becoming a doctor herself; but when she becomes pregnant out of wedlock, she is banished to the bleak landscape of southern Saskatchewan in 1906, where she must come to terms with her predicament, her pioneer environment, and her employment as a "dollybird," a term applied to women who might be housekeepers, might be whores-or could be both.

A saga of birth, death, and the violent potential of both men and the elements, Dollybird explores the small mercies that mean more than they should under a prairie sky that waits, not so quietly, for people to fail.
