Editorial Reviews

"[The Seary Line] is a character-driven tale and Lundrigan's gift is to create memorable ones...The characters are haunting and evocative...there's more than enough suspense to keep the story moving and the settings are great."- Margaret Cannon, The Globe and Mail"Lundrigan plaits a rich braid of tales, as effortless to read as it is to believe...richly rendered through a crafted style that is never affected or merely ornamental...something extra permeates this novel. It is the bare consideration of memory, regret, and how a single, slipped moment can fix a life."- Bruce Johnson, Atlantic Books Today"The Seary Line is steeped in her brand of Newfoundland Gothic, of characters, dilemmas and settings that are tweaked to a pitch of loneliness, defect and calamity all of their own."- Joan Sullivan, The Telegram"If there is a new wave of Newfoundland fiction going on, Nicole Lundrigan may be one of its leaders…Lundrigan writes about Newfoundland the way William Faulkner wrote about the American south."- The Western Star"The novel’s greatest strength, and the reason to read it, is to experience the lives of such intricately wrought characters…the detail and affection in Lundrican’s stitches create a cloth of vivid colour and lingering texture.”- Newfoundland Quarterly Vol.101, Number 3"I was fewer than fifty pages into the book when I realized thoughts of American novelist William Faulkner were dallying in my mind … a dandy read, sown with people and incidents as fecund as a freshly plowed field … it’s chock-a-block with double-edged imagery."- Harold Walters, The Advertiser
