Delphine Boudreau and her husband Hugo are living the hobby farm life of her dreams on the Canadian Prairies, far from the world of climate change concerns and global conflict. The only thing missing is a spectacular new kitchen, a tiny bistro to call their own. When she accidentally orders one online, her attempts to remedy the situation threaten her marriage to Hugo. The pressure explodes when her brother Paul arrives with end-of-the-world paranoia and plans to save the whole family on his hidden rustic homestead. As Del's comfortable little world falls apart, she, Paul, and Hugo must work through layers of family conflict to reveal the secret that has entangled her family for generations. Funny and crisp, Want is the brilliantly relatable story of a woman who has to choose between a shiny new kitchen and her family's survival. Barbara Langhorst's Want will keep you laughing and guessing until the end.

Born and educated in Edmonton, AB, Barbara Langhorst teaches writing and literature at St. Peter's College in Muenster, SK. Her first book, Restless White Fields (NeWest 2012), won Poetry Book of the Year Awards in Alberta and Saskatchewan. Want is her debut novel. She lives in Humboldt, SK.
