Set on the rugged island of Newfoundland, OF SEA AND SEED takes the reader on a tragic journey through the 1920s as one family strives to hold onto life in the face of secrets, betrayal, and tsunami. Chronicling this journey is the family matriarch, Kathleen Kerrigan, who is condemned to an afterlife of atonement for the depth of her crimes in life. But what possible mortal sin could cause heaven to banish this loving mother, grandmother, and storyteller?

A poetic, literary masterpiece, this first book of The Kerrigan Chronicles illuminates the depths of the human heart as it follows three generations suffering from toxic family secrets, shocking betrayals, and the harsh everyday reality that accompanies a life entangled with the sea. This suspenseful account of life in early twentieth century Newfoundland is as stunningly lovely as it is devastatingly heartbreaking.

OF SEA AND SEED is a gripping family saga-an unforgettable must read.
