              Based on a true unsolved crime from 1877, Laurie Glenn Norris's debut novel tells the story of two small towns linked by the disappearance of a teenage girl. Mary Harney is a dreamy teenager in Cumberland County, Nova Scotia, whose ambitions are stifled by her tyrannical grandmot...her and alcoholic father. When Mary's mother becomes ill, an already fragile domestic situation quickly begins to unravel until the October evening when the girl goes missing. Across the water on Prince Edward Island we meet Gilbert Bell, whose son finds a body washed up on the beach below the family farm. As the community is visited first by the local coroner and then by investigators, Glenn Norris paints a fascinating and darkly comic picture of judicial and forensic procedures of the time. At once tightly plotted and pensive, the novel travels back to the circumstances that led to Mary's disappearance and then back further to the circumstances of her parents' marriage, all the while building toward a raucous courtroom finale.

              William (Billy) G. Budge was born in 1948 in the small fishing village of Neil's Harbour on the northern tip of Cape Breton. In 1955 his father accepted the position of lighthouse keeper on St. Paul Island, a rugged and forlorn mountain in the sea. This island is subject to viole...nt gales and snowstorms and is often shrouded in fog. Early seafarers called it the Graveyard of the Gulf due to the vast numbers of ships and countless lives that were lost along its shores. Billy and his family lived in almost total isolation. They quickly learned to cope without neighbors, electricity, or schools, and they lived off the land -- hunting ducks along the coast, berry picking, and jigging cod on the sea. Practically every day brought new hardships and problems to be solved. Life on the island was one of both tragedy and triumph. In Memoirs of a Lightkeeper's Son, Billy tells his story of survival on that lonely rock.

              Historic House Names of Nova Scotia
               

              Historic House Names of Nova Scotia (Trade Paperback / Paperback)

              Uniacke House, Acacia Grove, Winckworth, Saint's Rest, Spruce Tree Cottage. Ever wonder how Nova Scotia houses got their names? The better-known names are largely connected with prominent historical figures who resided in commodious homes with sprawling grounds, but the naming tr...adition was far more prevalent than that. In this book, the author explains that a hurst is a wooded eminence, a hillock, or a grove, and this suffix lends an air of nobility to a property--Springhurst in Maitland, Lindenhurst in Halifax, and the ubiquitous Elmhurst, which appears in various communities. Named houses have a certain essence and vitality about them. Named or not, places do possess character--and putting a name to something that exhibits character makes sense on some level. Historic House Names of Nova Scotia provides a fascinating look at the house-naming tradition in Nova Scotia. What sorts of names did Bluenosers create, and what did the names mean? Author and historian Joe Ballard has amassed a wealth of historical information and photos on the subject.
