In Yorkton, Saskatchewan, seventeen-year-old Libby Bateson drops out of school because she is three months pregnant. Her unsympathetic dad throws her off the family farm. Libby has never traveled anywhere except the in the immediate vicinity of her environment. Now the frightened and heartbroken, Libby takes the Greyhound bus to Toronto with no intention of ever returning home.Eight years later, Libby's daughter Nicole is having problems with second grade and trouble with older children in the neighborhood. Though Libby once vowed to never return home, she decides it is time to get her diploma. She knows she needs that in order to straighten out her own life. This will also allow her to provide her daughter with a temporary change that means four months on the farm with her father who insists she is dead. However, soon Libby has a bigger problem to face as she has fallen in love with her old neighbor Gibson Browning, but he belongs in Yorkton while she being a pariah needs to live elsewhere.A DAUGHTER'S PLACE is a wonderful contemporary romance that stars an intrepid heroine while providing an insider's look at the Canadian side of the Great Plains. The story line is fun to read as Libby faces the condemnation of her father and most of the town with aplomb and courage, but fears her growing love for Gibson. Fans who enjoy a story that proves you can go home again will want to read C.J. Carmichael's latest novel.Harriet Klausner
