Author: Howard Norman

Call #: NOR

A family drama/love story that is told as narrator Wyatt Hillyer’s letter to his daughter, this novel is at turns beautiful, frightening and sad.  In the midst of World War II, German U-boats are attacking passenger ships off the Atlantic coast of Canada.  When Wyatt’s adopted cousin, who he is in love with, begins dating a German student, her father starts to suspect that they have an enemy in their midst.  Norman writes small, cold towns like no one else with characters that are quirky and flawed in a way that makes for great reading.
