Hard Light (15)

This is a wonderful book on life in Labrador and Newfoundland. We learn how basic, yet how great life was half a century ago on the East Coast.

Here is a world of hard toil and cold weather. The stories are written with stoicism, grim humor, patient endurance and love.

The islands seem bare and burnished black. It is hard to believe that the afternoon sun would catch the metallic glint like that. It was a time to remember and a time to celebrate the history and culture of the East Coast.

I love to read books about how life was in the past. Life was simple and more basic but also much slower and much more intense.

This book was for the mini-challenge this month and I loved it from beginning to end. Thank you John Mutford for suggesting that we read this book for the challenge!
