We had Mrs Mike in our school library in elementary school, but when my best friend and I read it in grade 7, it felt like it was more "adult" than the other wholesome books they had in the school, even though it doesn't actually have any sex in it. It's by Benedict and Nancy Freedman, 1947.

It's a story of a young woman who marries a Mountie, back in the old days in the North West Territories. They have various hardships and trials, keeping house in a cabin in the bush and earning the respect of the local people, both white and First Nations. The protagonist and her husband have two small children, who die of some illness. Later in the book, they adopt some First Nations children and she begins to be happy again.

Do any of you remember reading this?
