I’d never heard of you or your book and just stumbled on it at Costco a few days ago and bought it because I’m supportive of local writers. I think you captured the whole New York – Newfoundland connection and so much of it mirrors what I’ve heard about my ancestors and their sojurns to the Eastern Seaboard in search of adventure, escape from a poor economy and a more reliable livlihood. I loved all your characters. No happy ever after, just reality, which was, after all, pretty good, all considered.
I look forward to your next book.
Thanks so much, Janet!
