Death and despair follow John Healy around like the sad and sombre notes the fiddle plays in the backroom of the local store in the small Nova Scotia village he calls home. Been in the Storm So Long is a story of one man’s journey from the East Coast of Canada to New Orleans and back, from whaler to thief, murder accomplice to father and husband, alive to dead and back (more than once). The intimate story of Healy’s life as he navigates an emotional journey fraught with unbearable death and loss, keeps unspoken secrets from those who matter most, and finds redemption when all seems lost, is a story that transcends time. Can John Healy leave what happened in the past where it belongs, or will it shape his future in ways he can’t possibly imagine? Terry Jordan’s new novel - at once provocative and meditative - is a picturesque portrait of a time and place, and one man’s struggle for forgiveness.
