A story of life on the Frontier for Poles and all of the intricacies that go along with it.


This was a very calm and relaxing story. I actually quite enjoyed it, but gave it a lower rating because, as I sit here trying to write a review, I really don’t remember much. And the notes that I wrote while reading it? Less than useless…

  • A very calm and relaxing story.
  • Felt like daily life on the frontier
  • Little bit sad, but felt kind of hopeful for Yorvak

That’s it. That is apparently what I thought while reading this relaxing story. And I’m not even sure if I spelt the last word properly… oh well, it was still apparently a pleasant way to pass the time.
