Island Maid: Voices of Outport Women by Rhonda Pelley, Sheilagh O’Leary
English | May 12, 2010 | ISBN: 1550813250 | 128 pages | AZW3 | 3.38 MB

Sheilagh O’Leary and Rhonda Pelley spent two summers travelling from Bonavista Bay to the Great Northern Peninsula and to the communities of the south coast. The women they interviewed shared unique life stories filled with hard work, love, heartbreak, and family. Island Maid documents, with photos and words, the thoughts and lives of these women. It is also the chronicle of a journey, a feminist road-trip taken during one of the most tumultuous times in Newfoundland’s modern history. (2010-07-27)
