Abstract:

St. John's archivist Michael Lowe's life is turned on its head when a Dutch colleague, Anton Aalders, arrives on his doorstep in 1995. Anton is searching for a father he never met, ostensibly a Newfoundland soldier part of the Allied force that liberated the Netherlands at the end of World War II. Anton's visit stretches from a few days to a few weeks, keen as he is to learn as much as he can about Newfoundland, its history, and its people. Rabble rouser and ardent Newfoundland nationalist Miles Harnett, Michael's friend, is obsessed with his own search for the lost "fatherland" of Newfoundlan.
