This book is set in Elliston, Trinity Bay, in the early twentieth century. The author takes her audience on a journey of the woman’s ever-changing roles throughout her life in outport Newfoundland. While this book went into great detail about a woman’s life during that time, it was not a book that I could not put down. When I read, I like to connect with the characters in the book; and, unfortunately, this did not happen for me. Perhaps it is a book better suited for a female audience or for those who have a keen interest in learning more about this topic in Newfoundland’s history.
