A NovelBook - 2005
This is a compelling story of love crossed by the blindness of faith and fate, played out in the outports of Newfoundland, the POW camps of Japan, and the cities and small towns of mid-century America. It is both compulsively readable and a penetrating study of the reach and limits of love, the depths of human hatred, and the ultimate impossibility of fully knowing another or oneself.
