5. Broken Man on a Halifax Pier (Lesley Choice)

Screen Shot 2020-01-28 at 9.49.46 AMBroken Man on a Halifax Pier was a quick read about a man, broken, jobless and behind in his rent, who meets a woman on the pier.  She is named Ramona and swoops into his life, pulling him out of his listless state to build a relationship and face the challenges of past, present and future.

Drugs, a gun, fights, arrests, near drownings, death and a terrible storm combine with decades of with family drama to keep the reader engaged.  Broken Man on a Halifax Pier is an enjoyable read which blends every day challenges of life with the power and danger of living near the ocean in hurricane season.

There is a small part of me that wants to give the tent trailer a second chance and head back East to spend more time in Nova Scotia (and actually get to Halifax) after last year’s “adventure” which could rival a Chevy Chase summer vacation!  I might need to read a few more books tempting me to travel east first… and get the tent trailer home as it is still vacationing in Cape Breton!!!

  1. Oh, do try to keep that small part alive. Fan the flames with more Atlantic Canadian lit – I’m full of ideas for you.

    And, although many people find Halifax the ‘best’ (often only) part of Nova Scotia, I can personally vouch for the North Shore. 😉
