One morning he makes a bold move: discreetly he gets ready and boards The Beloved, a fishing schooner bound for Newfoundland. Soon, in his wake, follows Marie-Joseph Menard the prettiest girl of the county. She has never seen the sea yet shewill follow him all the way to Dog Island on the other side of the Atlanti c Ocean. Four generations later, Marie-Joe's great grand-daughter, Francoise Enguehard, retraces the voyage of her ancestors and tells the history of the fishermen who, at the turn of the century, fished the Grand Banks of Newfoundland or settled in the islands of Saint-Pierre et Miquelon." - from the back cover.
