In Backroads to Bliss, Glover once again infuses her characters with the exhilaration, pride, and grit that typified those who settled Canada’s untamed bush country. She begins in England with Allison Middleton, a spoiled daughter of the aristocracy. When Allison makes the grave error of embarrassing her snooty father, she is banished to the far reaches of the Empire: the wilds of Canada. Allison’s long trek from pampered society girl to a penniless immigrant is as moving as it is entertaining. With warmth and spirit, Glover shows how anyone who asks for redemption can find it in God’s waiting arms.
