“…a startlingly good feat of historical fiction.” - The Miramichi Reader
"Meticulously researched and seamlessly blended historical fact and Kevin Major's fiction, Land Beyond the Sea was a great read." - Atlantic Book Reviews
"It's immediately apparent that Major did a lot of research to write this book. His most casual descriptions are strikingly authentic and the focus is wide-ranging. Whether standing on the bridge of the Caribou or peering through the periscope of U-69, the reader is plunged into the surroundings... Land Beyond the Sea is a crackling read that invokes both sympathy and empathy for the people on both sides of the conflict. It's quite an achievement on Major's part." - Denise Flint, Downhome Magazine
"[Kevin Major] describes the protagonists of both sides, Germans and allies alike, with great empathy . . . his approach is profoundly humanistic." - Christian Adam, German scholar and author of "Lesen unter Hitler (Reading under Hitler. Authors, bestsellers, readers in the Third Reich)", in afterword of German translation, "Caribou"
“Seeing the island [of Newfoundland] for the first time, the German [commander, Ulrich Gräf,] is captivated by its coastline and 'lofty cliffs indomitable'; he wants to roam the island with a sketchbook, an appreciation that will likely endear him to Newfoundland readers.” - Tracy Whalen, Canadian Literature
