They bear and lose their firstchild, fear the dangers of hazardous coal mines, and raise a family of fou r children on their homestead. But like time-wrn cloth, this trues story contains holes, and Monica Kidd, poet, journalist, and great-granddaughter toAndrew and Rosalia, is compelled by them. Did Andrew and Rosalia court? Wh y did they each leave Slovakia? Many years later, Kidd travels from her home in Newfoundland back to Alberta and then Slovakia, where she trails the ghost of Rosalia in search of why she, and so many thousands of women like her, launched themselves into the terra icognita of becoming a frontier wife.

4 KIDD, Monica. Year of Our Beautiful Exile. Paperback.
Gaspereau Press, Kentville, 2015, ISBN:9781554471430 2015 1554471435 / 9781554471430 
KIDD, Monica. The Year of Our Beautiful Exile. (Kentville, Nova Scotia) : Gaspereau Press, (2015). First Paperback Printing. Pp. (14),15-89,(7). 8vo, decorated black card covers in tan paper jacket.

"In 'The Year of Our Beautiful Exile', Monica Kidd observes the ways in which estrangement and loss punctuate our days, but need not always diminish them. Whether she is writing of the bicentenary of Charles Darwin's birth, the displacement of whole communities during the epic flooding of Alberta's rivers in 2013, or of the many minor disconnections which occur in the headlong tumble of domestic life and love (where sometimes a smartphone might seem better connected than a spouse, 'remembers my birthday with a cheery trala'), Kidd demonstrates a keen eye for the ordinariness of loss, for the way in which the world evolves and adapts in the midst of perpetual change and for the many small moments of human connection that form our lives." - from the rear wraparound band.

Very good in dustjacket. 15.00
