This bountiful, magical novel opens with the discovery by two fishermen of a baby floating in a cradle on an ice pan in the North Atlantic off the coast of Newfoundland in 1912. To the small fishing community into which the foundling is adopted, Aurora, as they name her -- with her shock of white hair, one blue eye and one brown -- is clearly enchanted. But it is not until Aurora is herself an old woman that she learns the heart-wrenching story behind her miraculous survival on the ice.

How can it be possible that I hadn't discovered this gem of a book until now! One becomes part of Aurora's family, past and present. And so much knowledge imparted herein about life and the culture of Newfoundland...the other coast of Canada. For slowpokes such as myself who haven't discovered this great read, I highly recommend it.

I read this book a couple of years ago and loved it. Enthusiastically recommend it as a very thoughtful read.

I too read this book many years ago. It is one of those books that stays with you for years to come. Joan Clark writes of the relationships between people, their quirks and passions.
