    Flat with a beautiful narrative

    This book was a challenge to read. The story was slow and not very interesting. I felt I was always waiting for something to happen and nothing ever did. I hoped for an epic ending but I was disappointed with something predictable. The author is talented but needs to add some spice.

    An excellent account from the perspective of a wife of one of the men who perished in the sinking of the Ocean Ranger. Moore takes you on a lifelong, intimate journey of this woman as she raises her family and deals with everything life has to throw at her and her own thoughts over a period of 30 years. Heartbreaking loss described in detail and oh so very real and easy to relate to!

    This year's Canada Reads pick and I'm glad it was, because I wouldn't have read it otherwise. One of the judge's said the sisters' relationship was inconsistent and didn't ring true. I say he doesn't know squat.

    Moore captures the nuances of the Newfoundland character quite like Donna Morrissey. Great read.

    Interesting but lacking

    I liked the story but I found the writing detached. I've noticed this style with some Canadian writers, so maybe it's just me.
