Book Description
Who says you can’t go home again?

Sylvia can’t imagine why anyone would ever try. She had left rural Newfoundland as a scrawny, shy girl who was too smart for her own good. When she dragged herself home for her cousin’s wedding, she couldn’t believe how much had changed—or how much had stayed the same.

Ten years older but no less fixated on an exit strategy, Sylvia returns to confront the person she left behind: her younger self. When she left, she was Miss Sylvia Pride, a fisherman’s daughter without an education, money, or any sophistication. Returning now, she is a different person.

Whether she wants to or not, Sylvia reconnects with her long-lost best friend. While they are unpacking things left unsaid for years, Sylvia’s life gets more complicated when her husband arrives from Boston. Surrounded by the successful families in her hometown, and with her own marriage on the brink of collapse, Sylvia finds herself at a crossroads. Is there such a thing as happily ever after? And can the family and friends she left behind now help her find it?

The People Who Stay is a tale of love and redemption in which the heart of family beats like the relentless tide against the rugged Newfoundland shores.

She is an alumna of Memorial University, where she received a bachelor of arts in English and bachelor of commerce. Samantha currently teaches public relations at her second alma mater, Mount Saint Vincent University, where she received her master of public relations.

Samantha’s first novel, Pieces, was released in 2013 and she has also been published by PR News, The Hockey Writers, and, like any aspiring writer growing up in Notre Dame Bay, the Lewisporte Pilot.
