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".

About the Author

She has worked for many years in public relations, first with Memorial University of Newfoundland, and later with Newfoundland Teachers’ Association. Many of her short stories have been published in small magazines, anthologies and school textbooks. The mother of two daughters and a son, she lives in St. John’s, Newfoundland. Random Passage, the 4-part television mini-series, based on her book, aired on CBC Television, beginning January 27, 2002.

It was an interesting book which told the story of the first settlers in a Newfoundland outpost and their struggle to survive. Their lives were hard, as it was in most of Newfoundland at that time, but especially so where they were situated. Throughout the book, each chapter brought more drama, tragedy, illness and death. I know that that is what really happened then, but I found it a little depressing. There were also happy times and their ingenuity, resourcefulness and imagination to overcome obstacles was amazing. I enjoyed the sequel to Random Passage, Waiting For Time, much more.

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.

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."

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

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!

Random Passage is an amazing book. I enjoyed it so much I went out and bought the movie. Not only did I lose myself in this book, but was totally captivated by the characters and their sense of struggle.
