Cloud Of Bone

Bernice Morgan is mostly remembered for her book and tv series of the same name: Random Passage. But this book, Cloud of Bone, is equally astounding in its depth and breadth, even if you are not from Newfoundland itself.

Three separate stories..seemingly... but linked in hidden depths by the life of the Beothuks, a race exterminated by the French and English, quite deliberately. Shawnadithit, the last known Beothuk indian, died in 1829 of tuberculosis, having been captured and taken to England as a showpiece...she was 27 years old.

The spirit of Shawnadithit links the other two; World War II St. John's, and current time London. All the stories are fascinating, but I had never known as much about the Beothuks before, a peaceful people treated like animals - if you have even a twig of interest...buy this book and bury your soul in it...we are all there.

Now into a second reading of INK and HONEY, I am finding it much richer and it's pulling me ever deeper into contemplation of my daily life.
