Saskatoon StarPhoenix Review - Been in the Storm So Long

Saskatoon StarPhoenix Review - Been in the Storm So Long

"Been in the Storm So Long, as historical fiction, requires research, and Jordan has done his work, on pre-Confederation Nova Scotia, on New Orleans, and on whaling and violin making. One of the restful places the wanderers in this novel often go — though violence occasionally rears its head in this area, as well — is to music, and the violin is the primary carrier of various Acadian tunes, both in Nova Scotia and Louisiana."

They are also intimate, distinct, and a voice for survivance." Read More...
