Since it was first published in 1986, Frank Ledwell's The North Shore of Home has had an enduring place in Island literature. In warm-hearted prose and poetry, in a voice keenly tuned to the music of Prince Edward Island English, Ledwell explores the Island's North Shore, and especially the richly historied community of St. Peter's Bay. Taken together, his poems and stories create a portrait of a community surviving through the Depression and the Second World War -- a community at the Island's edge and at the very cusp of the dramatic changes that would affect all small Prince Edward Island communities in the post-war years.
