Breakwater Releases Award-winning writer Chad Pelley’s debut novel, AWAY FROM EVERYWHERE

Away-from-Everywhere-web“Gripping from page one, Away from Everywhere is a finely crafted novel from one of the most talented young writers to come out of Newfoundland in recent years.”
-Kenneth J. Harvey, international bestselling author of Inside and Blackstrap Hawco

“This emotionally wrenching story made me cry. It also made me lament not having written it … A fascinating and tender portrait of a soul in torment. The text is articulate and lyrical.”
– M.T. Dohaney, award-winning author of The Corrigan Women

With lifetimes worth of blood, violence, delusion and broken love, this is no redemption story.”
– Kathleen Winter, award-winning author of boYs

Brothers Owen and Alex Collins are brought together when mental illness claims their father and sets off a chain reaction of unrelated, heart-breaking events. Both tender and bold in its delivery, Away from Everywhere cuts no corners in telling the story of their crushing childhood, the reasons the brothers become different men, and the unthinkable act of love that tears them apart.

Part warped love story, part family tragedy, Away from Everywhere is a heart-stomping pageturner.
