From the Back Cover:
A quiet masterpiece of literature that will haunt the mind and heart.
You will not find the Channel Shore on any map or chart. It is somewhere in Nova Scotia, close by the sea and surrounded by rolling countryside. And it is home to the unforgettable people who live in this book: men and women whose lives brush and intertwine, whose roots are in the soil, and whose dreams extend far beyond the dusky hills.
The Channel Shore is a story of birth and death, of passion and hatred, of joy and despair. Written with imaginative, poetic force, it is a moving account of the human condition. [Charles Bruce]
