Book Description:

Born in a place she never lived, it set the course for Norma Budden’s life. Spending her first few months on the eastern shores of the Hudson Bay, she went on to spend her childhood living in southern Quebec, then Newfoundland and Labrador. Never forming roots in one place for more than five years, she was no stranger to making friends, only to leave each one behind.

Saying goodbye so many times has had a lasting impact upon Budden. She shares her feelings on the subject but also introduces her readers to several people who have shaped her life in positive ways.

Having spent over 26 years on the western shores of the Hudson Bay, Budden resides in Arviat, Nunavut – a remote community located above the treeline – a place she refers to as home.

Arctic Child shares thoughts and experiences from Budden’s life – from her perceptions as a child, parent, writer, and traveller and, if you know Budden personally, you’ll feel like she is telling you a story. Though she shares her innermost thoughts about a storm she wasn’t sure she would survive, Budden also paints a picture of how wondrous it is living north of 60 during the warmer months of the year.

“The Arctic is not only a land filled with ice and snow for much of the year; it has so much natural beauty and charm. Everyone should spend even a year living in the Arctic to get a true appreciation for what it’s like to live in this part of the world. Personally, you can take me out of the Arctic, but you’ll never take the Arctic out of me.” ~ Norma Budden

I just finished reading Articles Child by Author Norma Budden. Although Norma is my friend for several years, I learned a little more about her by reading this autobiography. We are 29 years apart in age, grew up totally different, yet became such close friends on line, then in person. So many of the sites and things that I take as just everyday are inspiring to Norma. Her mind works Differently than mine. There is always a story brewing in her brain. That is no problem, as I am always ready for the next story or continuing story she writes. This autobiography was a kind of awakening to me, as I have never lived in the Artic. We take it so for granted here in the United States when we can drive most any place we need or want to go. We have many places to shop, eat and go for entertainment. I have so many Trees around my house, Norma has no trees. She loves my trees and lots of other trees,streams, sand, rocks and water. Norma loves Nature and enjoys traveling, so much. I now understand why. I have had the pleasure of being on two wonderful trips with my friend, Norma. I will remember those times forever. I recommend Artic Child to get a nice insite into who this Author is and how she thinks and believe me, she thinks all the time. Your attention will be held as Norma invites you along to meet some of the friends in her life. I also recommend all her other books. Once you start readings them you will be just like me and want the next one right away. Thank you Norma for being my friend. The world is yours, enjoy the wonder of it all and I wish for you to have many more adventures, many more years of Traveling, many Friends and much Happiness. ❤️

Norma Budden (Author)

Norma Budden currently makes her home in Arctic Canada where she has lived for 25+ years. Working as a department manager at The North West Company by day and writer/family woman by night, Norma knows what it’s like to be busy and appreciates moments of solitude, perhaps, more than the average person. Though Norma’s first serious attempts at writing involved poetry and song, she later went on to write non-fiction titles. However, since 2011, her truest passion seems to be in writing stories to appeal to readers’ emotions, with a touch of mystery and romance built into the stories. Norma is the proud author of the Freedom in Love series which, currently, has five titles published: An Affair to Remember, When Love Abides, Soul Confessions, Divided Loyalties and The Promise. She has recently published the first book in The Wish Trilogy titled, The Prayer. She is also the author of stand-alone titles, Coming Unglued: A Mother’s Journey into Hell, Written on the Stars and If Only, among others. She released her autobiography, Arctic Child, in February of 2019. Some of Norma’s greatest passions in life are reading, writing, traveling and taking photos. She enjoys spending time with her family and friends and spending time in the great outdoors. You can learn more about what is happening in her world by visiting
