Summary
In 1916, Idella and Avis Hillock live on the edge of a chilly bluff in New Brunswick-a barren world of potato farms and lobster traps, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. From "Gone," the heartbreaking account of the crisis that changed their lives forever, through "Wake," a darkly comic saga of funeral plans gone awry, "The Sisters from Hardscrabble Bay" beautifully charts the trajectory of the Hillocks' divergent lives against the background of a lost slice of Americana
Summary
Spanning the years 1916 to 1987, the lives of sisters Idella and Avis Hillock are described in a series of vignettes, opening with an account of their mother's death in childbirth and closing with Idella's husband, Eddie, now an old man, reminiscing about his life with Idella. Set in the rough landscape of New Brunswick, Canada, a hardscrabble world of potato farms, rough men, hard work, and baffling beauty. These stories offer a compelling and wry vision of two remarkable women
