Halcyon Days by Susan Taylor-Meehan
It is the 1930s. Canada is buckling under the weight of the Great Depression. Farms are failing, miners are striking, and the dread spectre of Communism lurks everywhere. A new schoolteacher, Lucy Wallace, arrives in peaceful Halcyon, Saskatchewan, eager to be a positive force in this small town. She soon wins the respect and affection of her pupils’ parents, and her participation in the local Homemakers’ group energizes local women to fight for the survival of their beloved town. However, all is not as it seems. Innocent events are misconstrued; little by little, the small prairie town becomes mired in doubt and gossip. When Lucy makes a surprising discovery, the authorities react swiftly with unexpected, terrifying results.
