In her sixth children’s novel, the author of the best-selling Tunnels of Moose Jaw Adventures series has come above ground to focus on the fields of rural Saskatchewan and 10-year-old Danny, who wants to be the next-generation farmer in his family. In Seeds of Hope, Mary Harelkin Bishop shares her love of the Canadian Prairies with their wide open spaces, endless potential and optimism despite constantly-threatening problems. Danny experiences not only the joys of life on a family farm but the sorrows of a drought, low crop prices and the worry of a farm in trouble. On top of that, the town bully won’t leave him alone. How can he protect himself and help his family?
Seeds of Hope: A Prairie Story was awarded Honourable Mention in the Teenage category of the 2008 London (England) Book Festival, Honourable Mention in the 2009 Nashville Book Festival and was a Finalist in the Children’s Literature category of the 2009 Saskatchewan Book Awards.
