“Subtle, powerful, seductive and suspenseful, this is anovel that will steal your heart away.” —THE CHRONICLE HERALD

When Anna Starling flees a dissolving marriage in California to save herself and her artistic career in Cape Breton, her life intersects with that of Red Murdock, a cabinetmaker who has recently lost the great love of his life, Rosaire. Surrounded by old ghosts and echoes of those who once lived in this isolated, depleted community, Anna and Murdock discover that the present is inextricably linked with the past and that both can lead to moral dilemmas. How grave is sexual betrayal? Who is behind the bale of marijuana that washes up on Anna’s shore, and what should she, an outsider, and Murdock, rooted to this placeand attracted to her, do about it? Can these two people ever overcome the pain of the past?

Part erotic love story, part quest for home and heart, Anna From Away is a superbly crafted tale of love after love, a tale rich in atmosphereand infused with lyrical descriptions of land and sea. Written with an ear for the cadences of Cape Breton and a profound understandingof the many emotional shadings that pass between men and women, this novel is another superb work from D.R. MacDonald.
