From the Back Cover:
Winner of the Seal $50,000 Canadian First Novel Award, this is a work of refreshing originality.
Judith, a fiery young woman who has become disillusioned with the sophistication of city life, returns to the country to forge her future. Single-handedly, she struggles to run a pig farm while ignoring the scepticism of her neighbours; and finally, she finds a lover who stirs her in ways she’d never thought possible.
Judith is an exhilarating voyage of self-discovery, a compelling story etched with the honest vision and warm humour of a major Canadian writer. [Aritha van Herk]
