Levi Conley has spent his life making a hard living off the water.

Fishing defines who he is. But after being betrayed by his business partners, who are also his brothers, he flees out west for the “big bucks” promised by work as an apprentice welder. The work is well-paid, as promised, but it is also hazardous. And there is the unexpected collaboration with Jon Smith, a young native and contemporary artist; Levi respects his craftsmanship but balks at his politics. A new career in a new place with a new view of Canadian society – Levi must navigate these obstacles and more in charting his new life.


“Provider’s Son will have a particular resonance for anyone with an interest in the giant camp-based construction sites that lure so many Atlantic Canadians west. It is a character-driven novel that captures personal struggle against a backdrop of economic and cultural history.”
