Set in the early 20th century on the Canadian prairies, this novel tells the story of a young woman who, after the death of her doctor father, must assume the role of doctor within her community. #CutsLikeAKnife (doctor = scalpel = knife ... work with me here).

@Cinfhen @vivastory

rohit-sawant @Cinfhen Stories by yours truly 😁 Naw, I'm kidding. A lot of people find novels more engaging than short stories and there's #noreasontobeashamed about it. I think what matters, especially when it's so easy to get distracted by the interwebs, is that we're invested in reading!
And here are some titles you might find interesting:
Winesburg, Ohio by Sherwood Anderson
Fragile Things by Neil Gaiman
The October Country by Ray Bradbury ⬇️

rohit-sawant 20th Century Ghosts by Joe Hill
Interpreter of Maladies by Jhumpa Lahiri
Birds of America by Lorrie Moore (YetToRead)
John Cheever's collected stories
Edith Wharton's short stories

Cinfhen Thanks for ALL the suggestions!!!! The only collection from these titles that I read and I didn‘t care much for was 12mo
rohit-sawant @Cinfhen My pleasure! Hope you find the rest enjoyable! 😊 12mo

#HistoryNeverRepeats I have a bunch of history books on my shelves that would beg to differ. This book (#stillonmyTBR) is a counter to Francis Fukuyama‘s controversial book The End of History, which was released a few years after the end of the Cold War.

twohectobooks Also still on my tbr! I heard about it on a cbc interview 2y
Moray_Reads Oh, the End of History, the very bane of my university years...😬 2y

This is an account of a Victorian-era explorer who set off to the jungles of Africa in search of the then mythical gorilla. #wherethewildthingsare #90sinJuly
