Description

Winner of the McNally Robinson Book of the Year Award

"Tonic for the spirit: a charming, deeply moving, unerringly human story, perfectly shaped and beautifully told." --The Globe and Mail

Life in Winnipeg didn't go as planned for Knute and her daughter. But living back in Algren with her parents and working for the longtime mayor, Hosea Funk, has its own challenges: Knute finds herself mixed up with Hosea's attempts to achieve his dream of meeting the Prime Minister--even if that means keeping the town's population at an even 1,500. Bringing to life small-town Canada and all its larger-than-life characters, A Boy of Good Breeding is a big-hearted, hilarious novel about finding out where you belong.
