Abstract:

"A tale of one man's shipwrecked life and an unlikely crew of rescuers. Having lost his long-time journalism job and been swindled out of his life savings, fifty-five-year-old Charles Howard is standing by the edge of Halifax Harbour on a foggy morning contemplating his dismal future when Ramona Danforth interrupts his ritual of self-pity. And so begins a most interesting relationship. Charles and Ramona decide to travel to his childhood home, Stewart Harbour, a fishing village far down Nova Scotia's remote Eastern Shore populated by rugged individualists. Charles left the village immediately after graduating from high school and never looked back. Until now. The past soon catches up with him in ways he could never have imagined."--
