    Loved it

    Donna Morrissey's latest book is, like her others, a page turner. Written in such a style that the reader feel as stressed or scattered or moving as quickly through the story as the characters are. Kit's Law is my favourite of her books but this one of the Now Family is my favourite of that series. Even if you haven't read the other books in the series you can still read this one. Highly recommend it.

    The Fortunate Brother

    Having visited Newfoundland many times, I always wondered at the "outport people". They were a friendly, rough, hardy folk, who swore with every second word and who seemed to view me as I viewed me - as aliens from somewhere else. And then I read Donna Morrissey's The Unfortunate Brother. It took a few chapters to get familiar with the cadence of the language and the rhythms of daily outport life. But what a life it is. Beneath the poverty and the hard living and the walls of this mostly closed-off world, was a depth of humanity that challenged all my former preconceptions. This is a wonderful book. Dealing with grief, family dynamics and exploring the humanity behind behaviours that would normally be judged and condemned in my everyday world, I grew to appreciate each of the protagonists. And then, Ms. Morrissey punches us quietly in the face with a murder mystery, skillfully woven into this story that evolves and unfolds masterfully. This is an excellent read, and an eye-opener to a hidden way of life that is close to home.

    NFLD

    Another strong Newfoundland tale by Donna Morrisey. Not always easy to keep reading but the story grabs you and pushes you on.
