“IT IS A PARADOX, THE SEA. During this time of rumble and outrage, the North Atlantic, nonchalant, rolls on, set on creating at will. Within its swell are all the makings for good and evil, encompassing every possibility from the brightest of angels to the darkest of demons. I cherish its angels.”
Spectral matriarch of the Kerrigan clan, Kathleen resumes the gripping story of the lives of her family: feisty daughter Clara, brave granddaughter Kate, and troubled son Kevin. Through the tribulations of the Great Depression, they love and build and hide their secrets, but when war comes to their Newfoundland home, those secrets demand to be revealed. Their fishing and farming community of Argentia is doomed, razed to make way for a strategic United States Naval Base, and the Kerrigans find their destiny and fate caught up in the Second World War. For Kevin, the theatre of the European war is the stage for his quest for redemption.
In Of Sea and Sand, the riveting family saga of the Kerrigans continues with tragedy and hope on their ever-shifting horizons.
