When life in Winnipeg does not go as planned, Knute Corea-McCloud returns to her parents' home in tiny Algren, Manitoba, with her daughter, Summer Feelin', and takes a job with longtime mayor Hosea Funk, who dreams of meeting the Prime Minister and of uncovering the truth about his parentage, in a whimsical tale of small-town Canadian life. Original.

Industry Reviews

"A Boy of Good Breeding caught me at the throat, made me laugh and weep with sad-sweet joy .... [The characters ] get under your skin, and finally, it seems, into your very blood, where they quicken the heart ....Tonic for the spirit: a charming, deeply moving, unerringly human story, perfectly shaped and beautifully told."--"The Globe and Mail "Reading [Toews ] is like climbing into a fizzy bath of lunatic humour ....Buried in the mysteries of parenthood, love and death are at least a couple of home truths."--"Toronto Star "This is a lovely book; each character is a real person, fully realized ....But you'll have to read A Boy of Good Breeding for yourself, to be moved by the story's unfolding to a resolution that promises much; Toews has given us a novel that lets us write her characters' futures."--"Thunder Bay Chronicle Journal
