Description

When Luke Conrad’s aging mother breaks her hip he must return to the Nova Scotian fishing village of Tyler’s Cape for one summer to take care of her. There, as he starts to remember the childhood he has worked so hard to forget, Luke unearths a secret from his mother’s past — a secret that could be the key to understanding all that has happened to his family.

 

Taking the reader on a journey through childhood and memory, Tyler’s Cape is a story about the relationship between brothers, the difficult yet enduring nature of family, and the rediscovery of a child’s lost world of grace and glory.

Editorial Reviews

“Greer’s willingness to create a ghastly and credible Mom from hell, with no punches pulled, is the best thing about this book. Closely following that is his balancing, redeeming portrait of the love that three brothers give each other in the face of daunting odds.”

— Xtra Magazine

“This is a novel suffused with life and light, a portrait of proud people living at the end of the Maritime world … A sparsely haunting take on the redemption of a man named Luke.”

— The Sun Times
