    One thought on “The Corrigan Women”

    1. Love the books that follow the generations and this one was well done. Although not by the same author it reminded me of Great Village which I also loved.

    2. This book is a wonderful capture of historical Newfoundland. The story of three generations of women in a Newfoundland 20th century outpost is set in a Cove near Gander and encompasses so many local cultural norms and historical imperatives that I'm pretty shocked that it has not had more distribution. If you are interested in Newfoundland, read this book!
