OSMOND, Rosalie. Waldenstein. A novel. (Woodstock, ON): Seraphim Editions, (2013). First Printing. Pp. (8),9-327,(1). 8vo, illustrated blue card covers with grey lettering to front cover and spine. The Lunenburg, Nova Scotia-raised author's first novel. "What is it like to have the fixed assumption s of your world suddenly shaken? The people of Waldenstein, a tiny, isolated German community in early 20th-century Nova Scotia, survive lives of intolerable hardship through their unquestioning belief in a pre-Enlightenment Lutheranism. But when the most prominent man in the community fathers the child of his neighbour's daughter, Erika, and a new clergyman from Europe arrives to shake the certainties of faith, their firm ideas are overturned. Erika flees to England, to encounter her own uncertainties there, and years later her son, obsessed with finding his father, comes back to confront both the changing world of Waldenstein and his half-siblings." - from the rearcover.
