Read from February 01 to 16, 2012

This is a story coming out of Newfoundland. It is a well written story of deep human saga which is dark, raw and haunting. I thought of this book for many days after I finished the last page.

Throughout the book, I felt myself cheering when anything positive or uplifting may have happened to any of the characters, but sadly, there was little cheering. At the same time, I fell into despair at the seemingly hopeless lives of the characters and the dysfunction in the families that we learn to know. I wanted to scream at them and tell them that life can be better than this. I wanted to yell at the parents and show them how to love their children.

Next month, I will be able to question the author in person about this book, as she has agreed to visit my bookclub! Thanks, Nicole - looking forward to meeting you!
