Isabel Norris has never left the ice. Her father was a hockey legend who died before she was born, and her grandparents have raised her in his skates.When Iz leaves her grandmother behind to play for the Winnipeg University Scarlets, she struggles to fit in on this team of hard-hitting, tough-talking women with a penchant for buffets, beer bongs and raunchy humour and a fierce loyalty to one another and to their sport. But in their raucous midst, Iz can’t quite find her own place in the game.As she moves between the rowdy hilarity of the Scarlets’ dressing room and quiet, lyrical contemplations, Iz tries to navigate the ways loss plays out on the ice. Based largely on author Cara Hedley’s three seasons on the University of Manitoba Bison, Twenty Miles celebrates women’s hockey and offers an uncompromising look at the ways in which the sport both haunts and redeems the women who play it.
