About the Author
Governor General Award winner Kevin Major has published 17 books, for both young people and adults. His first, Hold Fast, is considered a classic of Canadian young adult fiction, and was recently released as a feature film. No Man's Land, about the Newfoundland Regiment in WWI, was published in 1995 to much acclaim. Major's adaption has been brought to the stage by Rising Tide Theatre for more than a dozen seasons. A history of Newfoundland and Labrador: As Near To Heaven By Sea was a Canadian best-seller and finalist for the Pearson Non-Fiction Prize. Ann and Seamus, a verse novel, was shortlisted for a total of ten awards. It has since been turned into an opera, which has been performed internationally. New Under the Sun, the first in a trilogy of historical novels for adults and called "well written, nuanced, and compelling" by Canadian Literature, was nominated for an Atlantic Book Award. John Moss, writing in "A Reader's Guide to the Canadian Novel," has said, "Kevin Major is among the best Canadian writers of his generation. He has established himself as a figure of singular importance in our literature."

I'm really glad this book was suggested to my book groupReviewed in Canada on 29 March 2018
I'm really glad this book was suggested to my book group. The author covers a lot of Newfoundland history and culture in a very engaging story. I would certainly recommend it to anyone who is interested in learning more about Newfoundland.
