Our Sable Island HomeBook - 2014
"A memoir about the joys and perils of life on an isolated island. Sharon O'Hara takes you on a personal journey more than sixty years back to the legendary Graveyard of the Atlantic, where she grew up. Sable Island was still a lifesaving establishment in 1951 when Ernest O'Hara took his wife and four children, including a three-month-old baby, on the dangerous passage to Sable Island to make a home upon its sands. Ernest had accepted the post as officer in charge of the wireless station. The young couple had to nearly abandon twentieth-century civilization when they went to live there. This is the story of the hardships, worries, desperation, fears and uncertainties that come with such isolation. Sharon O'Hara is an educator, artist and writer. This book was written in collaboration with her sister Mary O'Hara"--Provided by publisher.
