182 pp, 8 3/8" H. "(This book) reflects not only the distinctive narrative voices of its authors, but also the diverse life-experiences of these three women: growing up in Glasgow between the wars, growing up in a small Newfoundland outport, growing up within the constraints of a fundamentalist religion, coming to this country after World War Two as the bride of a Newfoundland serviceman, leaving Newfoundland as the bride of an American serviceman in the 1960s. All this, and more, informs the short stories and essays contained in this book." Contents: Isobel Brown (November Memories / Two Photographs / Meaningful Coincidences / 72 Hours / Iona); Peggy Smith Krachun (Outport Girl Preferred / On Becoming a Grandmother / China Doll / Let's Stay Together / The Groupie Table); Nellie P.
