The timeless novel of Nova Scotia’s South Shore

A dreamy, optimistic, and youthful David Jung comes to claim his small share of the harsh domain of Rockbound, an island currently governed by the righteous and rapacious Uriah Jung. As David tries to find his way in a narrow and controlled world, he struggles for survival against his many conflicts and enemies: the sea, his own behavior, his best friend Gershom Born, the secret love he has for his teacher Mary Dauphiny, and—inevitably—his Jung relatives and their greedy ambitions for money and power.

Rockbound is enormously evocative in the power, terror, and dramatic beauty of the Atlantic sea; unrelenting in its portrait of back-breaking labour, cunning bitterness, and family strife; and, most prominently, an incredible story of many passions—love, pride, greed, and yearning—and the rocky landscape of the human spirit.

CANADA READS WINNER: Simultaneously a book of its time and a timeless story, Rockbound was brought out from the quiet backlist of Canadian literature and ardently championed by Donna Morrissey to win Canada Reads 2005, hitting multiple bestseller lists on its way up.
