Book Description
A soldier dies, a community vanishes…and a story is found.

When Steven Norris—a lieutenant with the famed Royal Newfoundland Regiment—dies at the battle of Gueudecourt in 1916, his family business is left without an heir. With the end of the Norris family mill, the once thriving town of Three Arms disappears.

Almost 90 years later, a high-school theatre class mounts a successful musical based on the life and death of Steven Norris. When the curtain drops, a group of actors, teachers, and parents embark on a camping expedition to Three Arms where they stumble upon the actual artifacts of Norris’s young life.

A compelling history—part narrative, part documentary, part drama—Joan Sullivan’s In the Field reminds us how one soldier’s great sacrifice can resonate long after he has fallen.
