A classic and wholesome romantic tale that has enchanted millions of readers worldwide, Mrs. Mike brings the fierce, stunning landscape of the Great North to life--and masterfully evokes the tender, touching moments that bring a man and a woman together forever.

Recently arrived in Calgary, Alberta 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. Standing over six feet tall, with "eyes so blue you could swim in them," Mike Flannigan 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 find strength in a love as beautiful and compelling as the wilderness around them...

This book is wonderful. Very well written, good characterization, good story telling. It keeps you very interested. The narrator did an excellent job on the audio version and her reading was very engaging. Keeps you listening. Gives you a glimpse of life in the Canadian wilderness during earlier times. It makes you glad to not live during such hard times. I wish modern fiction was this well written. They don't write books like this anymore.

I was a bit skeptical when I saw the genre listed as romance but I enjoyed this book. The Canadian history written into it was interesting and it was appealing to connect so much of my life in Alberta to these places and landmarks.

This is a really great love story, but it's so much more than that. Kathy and Mike go through a lot of hard times in Northern Canada in the early 1900s, and it's so interesting to read how they lived back then. Their love stays true, even through the most desperate and depressing times. I recommend this for teens and adults.

I read Mrs. Mike for the first time when I was in my mid-teen's. I found the story to sad, but sure made you think about what people went through back then and their hardships compared to now. It is a wonderful read, and would recommend it to anyone.

It was a little too sad for me. I guess I should have expected after reading the summary about surviving in the rough Canadian wilderness.
