A boy hides out in 'Canada'

In the new novel Canada by Pulitzer-Prize-winning Richard Ford, fifteen-year-old Dell Parsons seeks refuge in the Canadian prairie province of Saskatchewan after his parents are arrested for their impulsive and ill-fated decision to rob a Montana bank.  Dell is taken in by Arthur Remlinger who, unbeknownst to Dell, is hiding a dark and violent nature.  Fans of historical fiction with strong character development will enjoy this atmospheric tale set in 1956 Canada.  Looking for other novels set in post-WWII prairie towns? You may also like A Life of Bright Ideas, set in 1970s Wisconsin.
