Strawberry Girls is the story of two young women in their teens--Lil and Nan Addington-- who play an essential role in their widowed mother's efforts to sustain her family on the proceeds from their small strawberry garden. Their lives are essentially happy ones, though making enough to live decently is challenging. On the cusp of womanhood, Lil is the most self-conscious about the family's reduced circumstances and the social decline it brings. Her anxiety is soon heightened by an unexpected visit from Mrs. Adelaide Sinclair, a wealthy cousin of her late father who married into the British nobility. Written in the style of the beloved novel Little WomenStrawberry Girls is a lost classic of Canadian fiction.
