    A must read!

    I loved this book! It is rare for books to take place in Newfoundland and the author was able to highlight the wonderful nuances of the province without overshadowing the characters. The characters were written so richly written that I felt an attachment to them and their stories. It is the first novel by the author and I look forward to reading more of her work!

    A little disappointed

    The book blurb was intriguing so I took the plunge to purchase and read it. Although the stories premise showed promise, I was often distracted by too much unnecessary description of things-people clothes, food, brand names and routes driven or walked. Comments, questions and suggestions ere repeated over and over too many times. And pertinent information seemed to come from unwritten conversations everywhere! There were some moments that were well written and they did keep me reading and searching, but I finished the book feeling it needed simplification to tell the beautuful story trapped amongst the words.

    From a good home

    A very enjoyable book.Set in Newfoundland with picturiest description for the story background.. It tells the story of family relationships that are tested over a generation of secrets and shows the healing process of caring people.

    Fabulous book

    Fabulous book. Well written. I couldn't put it down. I would definitely recommend this book. Great to read a novel that takes place in Canada. I look forward to more books by this author.

    Execellent read!

    Great story with some historical reality. Enjoyed the description of St Johns. Maybe I will get to visit some day! The confusing part was the multitude of characters. A reference page would have been helpful. Still, a great story! Looking forward to the sequel!
