Stories From the Woman From AwayLarge Print - 1996
Captures the loneliness and danger—and beauty—of a woman’s life in rural Cape Breton, and the men and women whose weaknesses and wit enrich her community. No one has written better about darker Cape Breton, certainly not from a woman’s perspective. This is a domestic novel of life in the rural Cape Breton of the 1950s. There is very little violence—but it is there, at the edge, waiting for one more word, one more man who didn’t get the snow shoveled before his neighbours arrived, one more drunk coming out of a stupor at an all-night wake.
