SHORTLISTED FOR THE 2021 EVERGREEN AWARD
A tale of one man''s shipwrecked life and an unlikely crew of rescuers.

Fifty-five-year-old Charles Howard has lost his long-time journalism job and has been swindled out of his life savings. Standing by the edge of Halifax Harbour on a foggy morning, contemplating his dismal future, his ritual of self-pity is interrupted with the appearance of the mysterious and beguiling Ramona Danforth. And so begins a most interesting relationship.

On a whim, Charles asks Ramona to drive him to his childhood home, Stewart Harbour, a fishing village populated by rugged individualists far down Nova Scotia''s remote Eastern Shore. Charles left the Harbour immediately after graduating from high school and never looked back. And now that he''s returned, the past starts catching up with him in ways he could never have imagined.
Lesley Choyce is the author of over ninety books. He has won the Dartmouth Book Award, the Atlantic Poetry Prize, and the Ann Connor Brimer Award, and has been shortlisted for the Governor General''s Award. He lives in East Lawrencetown, Nova Scotia.
