    Although Sarah Ellis does of course in A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall also detail many of the problems immigrating can cause and create and yes even if one is moving to a country where there actually is not supposed to be a so called language barrier since Ivy and her family are moving from England to Canada in 1926 because there are fewer and fewer acceptable job opportunities and prospects in post WWI England I also and equally do very much appreciate that Sarah Ellis has Ivy’s imagined journal entries not be a continuous litany of doom and gloom that A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall presents a nicely balanced combination of positives and negatives and yes that many of Ivy’s fictional musings are actually often quite hopeful and even imbued with a delightful sense of humour and totally age appropriate as well as most appreciatively Ivy’s Diary voice feels like that of a tween girl and not like Sarah Ellis masquerading as a young diarist And no A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall is also NEVER just absolute optimism and positivity either since Ivy does experience language based cultural shock as she discovers that many typically British words either do not exist in Canadian English or have entirely different meanings that there is a definite and palpable undercurrent of animosity towards the British in 1920s Saskatchewan and that the uncle with whom the Weatheralls are supposed to be living does not in fact own a ranch but is barely scraping by even necessitating Ivy's father and brother to have to take menial jobs in order for them to help pay the uncle's many unpaid debts But unlike those immigration stories that tend to just focus on portraying problems and misery Sarah Ellis has her Ivy Weatherall also and even in my opinion mostly present her fictional journal entries as something inherently optimistic with both curiosity and interest regarding the family's new life on the Canadian prairies and with the negatives also never being depicted as something insurmountable but as obstacles that can and should be embraced and dealt with And yes the only reason why my rating for A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall is three and not yet four stars is that I personally do think the story that Ivy tells in her diary about her best friend Elizabeth Muller's brother Gerhard and him running away from home to become a musician is kind of allowed to just fizzle out and to not go anywhere in other words I would definitely have wanted a bit information about Gerhard and that there suddenly are no diary entries about the Mullers at the end of A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall this does feel a bit annoying as though the thread has just been allowed to completely disappear as even in the epilogue none of the Mullers are mentioned by Sarah Ellis But this little personal annoyance notwithstanding I do still highly recommend A Prairie as Wide as the Sea The Immigrant Diary of Ivy Weatherall as both a delightful instalment in the Dear Canada series and yes also as an immigration to North America to Canada account that does not dwell too much on the terrible and on the negative
