Product Description

From the Publisher

Internationally acclaimed novel, Random Passage, by award winning author Bernice Morgan has been made into an 8-part television mini-series to air on CBC Television, January 27, 2002. "Random Passage is windswept tale of endurance and of passion. It's the epic story of Irishwoman Mary Bundle's perilous odyssey from a harsh English workhouse to the remote Newfoundland outport of Cape Random-a struggling settlement forced to be a community through the sheer will to survive".

Author Bernice Morgan was unknown to me, until I found this book.

I was so impressed with her writing, I have now ordered 3 more of her books.
It's one of those books, that you hate to put down until you're finished!!!!
About a year ago, I decided to start reading the history of Newfoundland, as my mom was a Newfie (!) and I realized I knew little of her background and upbringing on the west coast of Newfoundland. I actually new nothing of the discovery of Newfoundland.

So, this book fit in nicely with the other reading I am doing.

Highly recommend this book .. enjoy the read.

I truly enjoyed this book. The author has woven the history of Newfound Land in a story rich with authentic and passionate characters. Bernice Morgan has a way of bringing the characters alive, so that I could not put the book down once I started it. This story is a testament to the endurance of human nature, but also to our capacity to love and to marvel at the world around us. I am ordering the sequel, and once I've read it, I am going to look for the videos. I also want to read more books by this author.
Sincerely, Francine Noiseux

Format: Paperback
On a visit to Newfoundland's Avalon Peninsula, this book's title always surfaced when I quizzed locals on cultural and historical points. It was about a 12-hour read, and I found it very easy to justify putting distractions aside to read this involving book. I felt that having two separate accounts of events, each through the eyes of two of the book's characters, really added to the depth of the story. No wonder why Newfoundlanders are so proud of the heritage that grew from the struggles on "the rock."

What a wonderful book! I saw the CBC miniseries first and for once that didn't ruin the book. I fell in love with the characters, love the portrayal of Newfoundland. What a harsh life they lived. The writing is super...the characters are beautifully drawn. Loved it!
