Overview

A novel of remarkable historical breadth, Found Far and Wide follows Sam Kennedy through the tragedy of the Great Newfoundland Sealing Disaster of 1914, the horrors of The First World War, and the dangers of rum-running in Prohibition-era New York. And as Sam journeys through the turbulent first half of the twentieth century, carrying the ghosts of those he’s lost, he clings to his love for a woman he’s only ever seen in a photograph. Here, one of Newfoundland’s most celebrated authors offers a story of the irresistible historical forces that define our lives and the compelling private power that beckons us home.
