Ida Florence Little Shay is orphaned as a teen. When she is sent to watch over young girls at a boarding school, Ida Florence is determined to make a better life for herself. However, her decisions along with the current state of the world lead her right back into the situation she came from. Fawn Breen has only ever known the small mud hut that she and her father live in, raising goats and foraging nearby. Once Sidney Breen finds Fawn in the woods, Fawn life changes forever. Harold Peavy can't catch a break since he made a decision in line with his morals. Forced into a life he didn't choose, Harold tries to make the best of what he has been given in the small town of Prophetstown, North Dakota.

True North follows the stories of three interconnected families living along the Canadian Border and the Turtle Mountain Indian Reservation in North Dakota from the 1930's through the 1960's. The time period and landscape offer a bleak landscape and outlook for the people of Prophetstown. Poverty, racism, and war defined these time periods for the people of Prophetstown. The writing carried a long story over several decades at a good pace. Each family had their own method of survival and holding on to hope. The characters were all bound together by tragedy and sorrow. Some of them used this bond to overcome while some became stuck in their suffering. Each character was written very real, raw and gritty. I wanted to know their stories and was carried through their journeys with each misfortune, setback and trial that they faced.

This book was received for free in return for an honest review. ( )

I received a pre-publication copy of this book as part of Library Thing's Early Reviewer Program.
This book follows three generations of 4 families in North Dakota. Historical time and place are not directly referenced and need to be gleaned from textual references. This made the first few chapters of the book somewhat confusing. Reading through with few breaks made it easier to remember the characters as the book progressed and their relationships were fleshed out, and as the cultural references were more familiar to me. The writer successfully captured realistic every-day situations and emotions of the very different but entangled families. Overall, the book paints a bleak but believable picture of life near the Canadian border throughout the 20th century.
