    I really enjoyed this book I found at times to be a bit muddled with the huge cast of characters and the abrupt change of narrator took a bit to get used to Overall though I enjoyed going along the journey of the families in Random Passage.

    This book tells the story of early settlers to the island of Newfoundland, a place where life was so difficult that the slightest miscalculation in supplies laid in for winter could mean the difference between life and death It was heart wrenching to read how fine that line was, how close these families came to death every single winter I found it especially difficult to...

    Early 19th century Newfoundland is at the heart of Bernice Morgan s novel which tells the stories of the Andrews and Vincent families in the small and isolated outport community of Cape Random For me, in terms of plot Morgan s novel does not have the usual elements of storytelling such as rising action and climax per se which I think is the point Rather the book reads like the daily life of the families living in the cape It should be noted that the title of the book itself, Random Passage, i Early 19th century Newfoundland is at the heart of Bernice Morgan s novel which t...
