"Susan is in labour. As she bears down through waves of contractions, Susan free associates her way through the pain, counting off each centimetre gained like a maternal Twelve Days of Christmas. Framed by the pains of childbirth, The Waiting Place tells the story of four women in rural Manitoba, bound together by familial ties and cattle ranching. Giving voice to each of the women in Susan's family, Sharron Arksey chronicles their deeply flawed and utterly human tales of lust and loss. Presented with great humour and compassion, The Waiting Place is a frank look at the lives and loves of farm women."--
