Broken Man on a Halifax Pier (Paperback)

$21.77

Fifty-five-year-old Charles Howard has lost his long-time journalism job and has been swindled out of his life savings. Standing by the edge of Halifax Harbour on a foggy morning, contemplating his dismal future, his ritual of self-pity is interrupted with the appearance of the mysterious and beguiling Ramona Danforth. And so begins a most interesting relationship.

On a whim, Charles asks Ramona to drive him to his childhood home, Stewart Harbour, a fishing village populated by rugged individualists far down Nova Scotia’s remote Eastern Shore. Charles left the Harbour immediately after graduating from high school and never looked back. And now that he’s returned, the past starts catching up with him in ways he could never have imagined.

Description

Review

Choyce has crafted an impressive novel about the power of the sea, the power of community and the power of memory. And he also happens to have told a fine love story. (Douglas Gibson, Atlantic Books Today)

Charles may be broken, but his hometown and the ocean itself seem to live and breathe. A great vacation book, one to take to the beach or to curl up with by the fireplace. (Library Journal)

One of Canada’s finest storytellers, Lesley Choyce’s, latest — Broken Man on a Halifax Pier — is warm, witty and wise … an engaging and entertaining tale of trial and triumph that speaks to the soul and spirit of the Maritimes. (Stephen Patrick Clare, editor, Celtic Life International)

Broken Man on a Halifax Pier is a rollicking delight of a novel by Nova Scotia’s prolific chronicler of the clash between old ways and new ways, and how romance and reality cohabit for better or worse. Funny, heartbreaking, self-effacing, and spot-on, Broken Man shows why the voice of Lesley Choyce is straight-up iconic. (Carol Bruneau, author of Purple for Sky)
