UK Publication Date

With the bestselling and beloved Kit's Law, Donna Morrissey established herself as a stunning new voice in Canadian fiction. With Downhill Chance, she has crafted a captivating successor, and in Clair Gale, she has created an unforgettable heroine. Clair is the unsinkable heart of the novel, a story of two families during wartime-the Osmonds and the Gales-joined by love, yet torn apart by fear and secrets. Morrissey blends melodrama, gritty realism and a flair for the comic in this unique novel. At its core is the unravelling of secrets-and the redemption that truth ultimately brings to the people who inhabit these pages so memorably.

"A Newfoundland Thomas Hardy...Morrissey's work is a performance, an almost oral folk epic."-The Globe and Mail

"A Wuthering Heights of the craggy coast of Newfoundland, a family epic of full (and fulsome) proportions." -The London Free Press

"Donna Morrissey is an absolute terrific original." -David Adams Richards

"Irresistible… Masterful… The rich, rocky terrain of Newfoundland has borne a native storyteller with talent to burn in Donna Morrissey." -Dublin Sunday Tribune

"Donna Morrissey is a wonderfully gifted writer. The setting of her books is Newfoundland, but their appeal is universal. She unashamedly cares for her characters and sees them as real people with real lives worth caring and reading about. To read one of her books is to wind up laughing or crying or somehow doing both at once." -Wayne Johnston

"Everything is hyper-vivid in Morrissey's world, not excluding emotions, dreams and unresolved conflicts… Morrissey reveals the beauty and the terror of two economic realities, worlds apart from us and from each other." -Toronto Star
