  • Written in the same style as his other book that I just read but it is a good read considering it is a Newfie written book There are many other stories waiting to be told but who will take it on and do it


  • Collins focus on an ordinary event taking place under extraordinary circumstances sheds a tender, respectful light on how strength of character can be forged at the anguished intersection of isolation and bereavement Downhome The story is intriguing The Chronicle Herald


  • I really enjoyed reading this book, it s one of the best books I have ever read It s a true story which makes it even better What Bert had to endure in order to get his brother Alex off of the Island is really amazing and heartfelt I recommend this book to anybody.Ed
