I really really really wanted to like this book I am a transplant to Winnipeg my husband is a native to the city and I was interested to read a book set here and steeped in the history of the areaFirst of all I will commend the author the book was obviously written with a lot of love for the history of Winnipeg and a desire to dessiminate its singular story It is obviously well researched the historical data is interesting and compelling This said I feel it is a poorly written novel I find many of the characters situations and dialogue terribly contrived This left me with a constant struggle to take this novel seriously while I was reading it Also the editing is atrocious There are a plethora of obvious errors and it needs to be re edited desperatelyHad this been a work of non fiction I feel that Altner would ve excelled Winnipeg has an interesting history and it is on display in this book I found myself too distracted with the writing to really enjoy it as I feel I should have I read this for my book club and am uite interested to see what others thought of the work
