Dr. Sylvia Walker has no inkling of the changes that are about to unfold in her life when she returns to visit her hometown in Cuddlesville, Newfoundland. Sylvia did not want to come home to Newfoundland; however, her cousin Mary insisted that she be part of her bridal party. With her own marriage on the rocks and her husband Ty set to arrive in the next few days, Sylvia has to muster up every ounce of resolve to maintain the façade of being the happily young married woman her friends and family believe her to be.
Get-togethers with childhood friends not only bring to the surface forgotten memories, but also open up old wounds — wounds that Sylvia fought years to keep hidden. The People Who Stay is a delightful read. Samantha Rideout does a remarkable job capturing the breathtaking beauty of some of Newfoundland’s small towns. The distinct Newfoundland dialect used warms the heart and makes you feel proud to be a true Newfoundlander!
