How can it be possible that I hadn't discovered this gem of a book until now! One becomes part of Aurora's family, past and present. And so much knowledge imparted herein about life and the culture of Newfoundland...the other coast of Canada. For slowpokes such as myself who haven't discovered this great read, I highly recommend it.

I read this book a couple of years ago and loved it. Enthusiastically recommend it as a very thoughtful read.

I too read this book many years ago. It is one of those books that stays with you for years to come. Joan Clark writes of the relationships between people, their quirks and passions.
