Overview

Needing a change, Shannon Carew takes a job in the National Parks system in Newfoundland and Labrador. The journey brings her life full circle, returning her to the birthplace she abandoned years before. As she makes new connections, and unearths old ones, Shannon learns the land holds many memories, stories of Maritime Archaic, the Vikings, the Basques, the Beothuk, and the Europeans who came after.

New Under the Sun is the work of a master storyteller.

Reviews

“A good fast read and a lazy way to get to know the history of this exotic province. ”

“All the elements of the perfect summer read. ”

"Each narrative strand is compelling in its own way . .. A skilful work of fiction. "

"A gripping, even poetic, narrative of survival . .. Major's verbal play is delightful, especially to a reader like me, who appreciates fine rhetoric and a good pun. "
