The Promised Land - a novel of Cape Breton
by Bill Conall
In 1970 a group of hippies wash up on the shores of Cape Breton, hilariously unequipped to meet the challenges of pioneering life. Forty years later, a new doctor coaxes her asthmatic K-Car across the causeway en-route to her first job at a small clinic in Baddeck. The Promised Land humorously navigates the ebb and flow of island life where things go from better to worse to oh-my-goodness.
