    This book tells the story of early settlers to the island of Newfoundland, a place where life was so difficult that the slightest miscalculation in supplies laid in for winter could mean the difference between life and death It was heart wrenching to read how fine that line was, how close these families came to death every single winter I found it especially difficult to read how hard these folks worked, day in and day out, to the point of exhaustion and even beyond, just to make enough fish b This book tells the story of early settlers to the island of Newfoundland, a place where life was so difficult that the slightest miscalculation in supplies laid in for winter could mean the difference between life and death It was heart wrenching to read how fine that line was, how close these families came to death every single winter I found it especially difficult to read how hard these folks worked, day in and day out, to the point of exhaustion and even beyond, just to make enough fish before the ships came back in to port, as I sat in my comfortable home reading a novel for most of a day However, the novel itself, I believe, could have been written better There were too many characters to keep track of, and few were fleshed out entirely My copy also had quite a few typographical errors, which surprised me as this isn t a first edition While I understood why Morgan chose to switch narrative voices, to mirror the diary being passed along, it was disconcerting to focus mostly on Lavinia in the third person for most of the novel, but then switch so drastically to another character writing in the first person Also I felt that the story dragged so slowly for the first two hundred pages or so, though it really picked up after that That said, this is a sobering look at the harsh difficulties faced by settlers to Newfoundland in the early days

    I really enjoyed this book I found at times to be a bit muddled with the huge cast of characters and the abrupt change of narrator took a bit to get used to Overall though I enjoyed going along the journey of the families in Random Passage.

    I liked the book from an historical point of view How these settlers survived is beyond me There were too many characters to keep track of and not all were very well developed I lost track of who married whom The narrative was a bit flat.

    An early 19th century family escapes trouble in England and ends up in a tiny coastal settlement in Newfoundland Just the kind of novel I love Beautiful writing, a unique setting, and a long mysterious story I d never heard of this book and I m so glad it was our book club read this month.

    Early 19th century Newfoundland is at the heart of Bernice Morgan s novel which tells the stories of the Andrews and Vincent families in the small and isolated outport community of Cape Random For me, in terms of plot Morgan s novel does not have the usual elements of storytelling such as rising action and climax per se which I think is the point Rather the book reads like the daily life of the families living in the cape It should be noted that the title of the book itself, Random Passage, i Early 19th century Newfoundland is at the heart of Bernice Morgan s novel which tells the stories of the Andrews and Vincent families in the small and isolated outport community of Cape Random For me, in terms of plot Morgan s novel does not have the usual elements of storytelling such as rising action and climax per se which I think is the point Rather the book reads like the daily life of the families living in the cape It should be noted that the title of the book itself, Random Passage, implies the random nature of life with birth, death, victories, failures, and suffering all signifying the unplanned and haphazard way our lives carry on The characters themselves are on a sort of life voyage with a random passage and are vulnerable to the often violent and unpredictable nature of the ocean The novel also reads as well rounded historical fiction as it gives you a clear sense of how Newfoundland attained its eclectic and diverse character Through Cape Random and its surrounding communities, we see a tiny glimpse of how various exiles, rogues, misfits, and refugees came upon Newfoundland and settled upon random parts of the island s shoreline in hopes to find freedom in their new home They experience hardship as they find that freedom has its limits with either the elites in St John s exploiting their socio economic status or falling prey to the harsh environment As such, there are themes of survival, hardship, and tragedy as the families struggle just to survive another winter Finally, while I found keeping track of the non linear storytelling a bit daunting at times, I would recommend it for anyone interested in learningabout Newfoundland literature, history, and the people
