A Lady’s Life on a Farm in Manitoba audiobook

This is an audiobook recording of A Lady’s Life on a Farm in Manitoba by Mrs Cecil Hall. In 1881, Mrs. Cecil Hall’s brother went to Manitoba to farm. In 1882, she went out for a visit of some two months, and followed that visit with a long sojourn in Colorado, returning to England as the snows began to fall. While there, she had to give up her “Lady’s ways” and help on the farm in many ways she’d never stoop to at home. She makes hay, cooks, paints the barn roof, and cleans. Through it all, the newness helped her keep her temper, and these letters home show an insight into the settlement of Western Canada. These letters have a feel of “Little House on the Prarie” from an English lady’s point of view.
