Read in November, 2009

10-04-2009; just started reading it today. Sounds like it will be very interesting, taking place in Newfoundland, Canada.
11-04-2009; Finished this book today. I liked it, but I agree it was long. We watched Smallwood grow from a young boy all the way into his 80s. That's a long lifetime. It was a sad story. All the regrets, and sadness that all the characters lived with all their lives. Really you hoped for a happy ending, but realized it wasn't coming. I did enjoy the descriptions of scenary and the history of Newfoundland.
