A novel set in the heyday of the Banks fishery

This early twentieth-century Nova Scotia novel explores the world of small fishing communities where religion and background are a source of family conflict.
Mercy Nickerson's father, returns from a voyage to the Caribbean with a young Irishmen he has saved from a shipwreck. Mercy and Dan are instantly attracted to one another. Rather than go to Boston, he decides to stay and turn his ambition to the fishery and ship supply. But his desired haven becomes a more dangerous place than he intended when he turns to smuggling and his wife turns against him.
EVELYN RICHARDSON was born on a small island off the tip of Nova Scotia and studied at Dalhousie University. In 1930 she joined her husband in caring for the Bon Portage Island light. Her account of these years was her acclaimed book We Keep a Light.
