That’s how I felt after getting to know Molly Chant. A beautiful read allowing me to be transported deep into the heart of the superstitions of Ireland and Newfoundland and how one woman’s journey is changed because of them.

Writing with the lyrical voice of a captivating storyteller, Winsor has the reader torn between savouring each evocative line and ripping to the next page. Molly Chant leaves a lingering impression of the tenacious woman who rooted herself to the very rock of Newfoundland.
