Where The Fishermen Sing (Electronic version)|
by Dolores Anna Careless « View Author's BIO
Where Fishermen Sing is a poignant love story with a spiritual quality and Canadian History. It is for women everywhere and for the romantic in all of us.
When as a young girl in the 1930s, Laurie lives with her grandmother in Canso, Nova Scotia. She meets her first love and becomes fascinated with the islands in the area. She says that if she was rich she would buy an Island.
On returning to St. Lambert on the St. Lawrence, she discovers Moffatt?s Island, named after one of her ancestors who was a fur trader for the North West Company. He married an Indian girl and promised her the island as a wedding gift. He became a prominent Montreal politician. Their love story is fictionalized in flashback and reflects Laurie?s own fulfillment. Places and description of said places in Canso and St. Lambert are authentic. Several pieces of her poetry are inserted to coincide with the era of the story.
The cover is a copy of a 1920s photo of Canso harbour.
Review for Le Citoyen de la Rive Sud (The South Shore Citizen) by Murdo
This first fiction by Dolores Moffatt-Careless, (Anna Careless) a St
Lambert writer, begs to be read again and again...it's pages are packed with
humour , imagination, and a subtle wisdom. There is strength in the book in
that it illustrates character building in extremely difficult childhood
circumstances. The writer has tremendous native talent and her ability to describe places and events is most unusual. this book is a must for those who are looking for good entertainment with a lot of substance.
