By the Rivers of Brooklyn, a historical novel from author Trudy Morgan-Cole, is a critically acclaimed novel that transforms into fiction the experience of the 75,000 first- and second-generation Newfoundlanders who once lived in Brooklyn, New York – and the experience of Newfoundlanders throughout history who have gone away to find work and prosperity but never stopped dreaming of home.
Critics have described the novel as “meaty and delicate” (The Telegram), “an impressive work of fiction” (The Western Star), and Morgan-Cole’s writing style as one “that takes you quickly into the story” (Chronicle Herald).
