10 McGRATH, Robin Winterhouse : A Novel. First Edition
Killick Press, St.John's, 2009, ISBN:9781897174517 2009 1897174519 / 9781897174517 
McGRATH, Robin. The Winterhouse : A Novel. St. John's, Newfoundland and Labrador : Killick Press, 2009. First Edition. Pp (6),1-219,(7). 8vo, photo-illustrated black card covers with French flaps.

"'My father has married me to a mad old man.' These words, written on a slip of paper inside a disintegrating brocade collar, are a clue to the unlikely marriage of a Jewish remittance man and a 14-year-old orphan in a remote Newfoundland fishing station. More curious still are the connections that entangle a retired schoolteacher and an Israeli scholar almost two centuries later. When the bereaved Rosehannah Quint and her mysterious 'mister' retreat into winter quarters at the back of Ireland's Eye, the two begin to develop an understanding based on curiosity as well as upon need - an understanding that works its way down the years. The Winterhouse is a compelling novel about finding oneself and creating one's community." - from front flap.

"Robin McGrath was born in Newfoundland in 1949, one of “the castor oil babies” of the anti-confederate movement. She obtained a doctorate at the University of Western Ontario and was an Associate Professor at the University of Alberta, specializing in Inuit literature. McGrath is the author of over a dozen books, including Trouble and Desire (1995), Escaped Domestics (1998), Hoist Your Sails and Run (1999), Covenant of Salt (2005) and Livyers World (2007). She is the recipient of the Geldert Medal, the Henry Fuerstenberg Poetry Prize and the inaugural Newfoundland and Labrador Heritage and History Award. Her novel, Donovan’s Station (2002), was on the Canada/Caribbean shortlist for the Commonwealth Award. McGrath now lives in Goose Bay, Labrador, where her husband is a Provincial Court judge." - from the back flap.
