Broken 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!!!
