Book Description
In the 1920s, Jim, Bert and Rose Evans all move from Newfoundland to Brooklyn, New York, in search of work and a better life, leaving their sister Annie back home in St. Johnís. By the Rivers of Brooklyn traces the story of the Evans family across two countries and three generations, exploring the hopes, passions and heartbreaks of those who went away and those who stayed behind.

By the Rivers of Brooklyn transforms into fiction the experience of the 75,000 first- and second-generation Newfoundlanders who once lived in Brooklyn, New York Ė and the experience of Newfoundlanders throughout history who have gone away to find work and prosperity but never stopped dreaming of home.

"With this novel, Trudy Morgan-Cole has broken new ground. A generational story of Newfoundlanders struggling to make a life for themselves in New York, it is permeated with memorable characters and a strong sense of place. A finely nuanced novel that is a pleasure to read." - Joan Clark, award-winning author of An Audience of Chairs and Latitudes of Melt.

"Morgan-Cole has a fine eye for significant detail, a keen ear for preciseness of time and place and an overall ability to mine the emotions of her characters."
- M.T. Dohaney, award-winning author of A Marriage of Masks and The Corrigan Women.

"You will be swept away by this story."
- Tina Chaulk, award-winning author of This Much Is True

"By the Rivers of Brooklyn is one of the most satisfying novels Iíve ever read...[it] establishes her as a writer to be reckoned with. I literally could not put it down.Ē
- Helen Porter, award-winning author of january, february, june or July and Finishing School

"A must-read. When I finished the last chapter, I was still hungry for more Ö Her newest book has taken years of research, and it shows."
- Shirley Newhook, The Telegram
