"An immediately recognizable woman, Rachel Cameron has let fourteen years slip by since her father's death forced her to leave college and return home to teach grade school. Trapped by a tyrannically demanding mother, Rachel must suffer daily assaults on her self-respect: from the yearly classes of youngsters, who give her no more than enforced attention, forgetting her as they move on, while she longs for a child of her own; from the school principal, who knowingly takes advantage of her insecurities; from the older fellow teacher, who insinuates herself ambiguously into Rachel's life ... But in her thirty-fourth summer quite unexpectedly [she] finds release ... [which] provides her with the strength to free herself."

The fire-dwellers by Margaret Laurence ( Book )
101 editions published between 1969 and 2013 in 6 languages and held by 1,633 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
"Stacey MacAindra is smart, witty, brave, and a bit desperate. Her marriage, her four children, and her happiness seem to be threatened by everything from well-meaning neighbors to her own sudden impulses for adventure. Her apparently staid suburban life involves an appalling abduction, strange romance, sudden death, and unexpected appearances by characters from other novels in the Manawaka series. Through all of this she somehow endures, and her story helps us to rediscover the richness and terror of the commonplace as well as the pain, beauty, and humor, of being alive."
