Abstract:

"The Sign on my Father's House is a novel about a young man's rough ride into adulthood. Felix Ryan is on a journey to discover who he is and where he is headed. He moves from rural Newfoundland to the hectic university life of the late 1960s. It is a world of music, girls, and new experiences way beyond his home-life experiences. He falls in love, gets married, breaks a heart, and gets his own heart broken. A key relationship in the book is the one between Felix and his father. Walter Ryan is a stubborn man who tends to alienate the people around him. He came to Newfoundland from Alberta, but he never quite fit into life in an outport. Felix's world is changing as the Joey Smallwood era comes to an end. Plans to continue his education on the mainland of Canada offer him new opportunities for growth and success. But they also mean an end to familiar ways and familiar people. He drives across the island on Joey's Trans-Canada Highway through Clarenville, Gander, Grand Falls, Corner Brook, and Port aux Basques, where the boat to his future waits. His decision to stay or go depends on one last french fry on his plate and an angel who comes to guide him. This is a novel about finding your own voice and putting up your own sign about who you are and what you believe. Not so much for the outside world, but for yourself."--
