Description

Award-winning author David Doucette situates his new novel in the hardscrabble life of an isolated coastal community in Depression-era Cape Breton. Doucette is a gifted storyteller with a knack for reflecting character and landscape – at once beautiful and bestial, sustaining and sinister.

North of Smokey is the gripping story of Frank Curtis, the youngest of four children growing up in a small wood frame house typical of the small settlements that dot the Cape Breton coastline between mountain and ocean – typical of people scratching a living from both. As the youngest, Frank has to try the hardest, learn the quickest, be the more determined. When a hunting accident almost takes his young life, Frank Curtis displays inner and outer strengths to which many aspire.
