What People Are Saying About this Book

Who would’ve thought I’d learn so much about humanity through a sweet little prairie fiction book? Fantastic first novel, Corinne. I can’t wait to read what happens next to these colourful characters that have crept under my skin.

– Steve Erwin, best-selling co-author of Left to Tell: Discovering God Amidst the Rwandan Holocaust (#1 Amazon, #4 New York Times)

We return to tales of arrival for good reason: reading about these risk-takers, making this country their own, is always moving. Corinne Jeffery is a very fine storyteller.

– Todd Babiak, Edmonton Journal columnist, screenwriter, and award-winning, best-selling author of The Garneau Block and Toby: A Man

She comes across as a natural storyteller with a real flair for giving characters the right voice.

– Scott Hayes, journalist, St. Albert Gazette

I was quickly engrossed by the lives of the pure and not-so-pure Werner family members. They face one unpredictable drama after another as they grapple with natural hardships and human folly. A really special book.

– Sharrie Williams, author, The Maybelline Story—and the Spirited Family Dynasty Behind It

Arriving is like a raw and racy Little House on the Prairie that throws the reader right back in time. Can’t wait to read the sequel!

– Marla Martenson, author, Diary of a Beverly Hills Matchmaker
