Both haunted and driven to discover a 100 year old secret, storyteller Jill Martin, leads the reader on a journey to one of the loneliest places in North America: Sable Island. Sculpted by wind and waves, this thin slice of grass-covered dunes for centuries has lured hundreds of ships to founder on its treacherous sand bars. Only the foolhardy or naïve dared to underestimate the dangers of the Graveyard of the Atlantic. It is to this notorious outpost a hundred miles from mainland Nova Scotia that newly appointed Superintendent of Lifesaving, RJ Bouteillier, brings his young family in 1884. In this harsh, isolated and mysterious environment far from city life, young Beatrice, a woman who challenges the prescribed roles of her sex, crosses the threshold from childhood to adulthood. Entries in the visitor’s book penned by long dead authors come to life in this engaging treasure hunt of passion and betrayal. Their stories unlock the portal to that distant past and chronicle the everyday lives of the residents of Sable Island. Coaxed ever deeper into the island’s labyrinth, the reader discovers that Sable reveals her secrets on her own terms and in her own time.
