Life in a late nineteenth-century Newfoundland fishing village is one of brutality and small joys. Janis Spence, the main narrator, gives both a wistful quality as Keziah Donovan looks back on her life from her deathbed. Other readers portray supporting characters as they write letters or diary entries. These narrators sound as if they're talking to themselves while they write, with pen scratches in the background. The whole cast gives a quietly human performance. Bits of accordion and harmonica music add to the book's simplicity. R.G.M. (c) AudioFile 2004, Portland, Maine [Published: OCT/ NOV 04]
