Mixed review: I loved the premise of the story--in 1542 a young woman, her maid/chaperone and her lover are marooned on a small island off the coast of New Foundland. The true story behind this novel is a very interesting part of early Canadian history that I hadn't known about before. But I wish Goodman had done a bit more with it--giving more depth to the characters and their relationships. Worth reading.
