This is an amazingly written, directed and cast story about those pioneers who came to settle on the island of Newfoundland. It is a story of love and loss, of life and death, but above all it is the story of perseverance. It takes an amazing type of strength to survive in early settlements, and this strength is demonstrated time and time again by the colorful characters created by Bernice Morgan. In addition to an excellent plot, one is able to enjoy the beauty and ruggedness of Canada's most easterly province. Newfoundland's scenery is absolutely breathtaking!
