A crusty fisherman in his sixties, stuck in his ways, fearful of the changing world beyond the headlands, and well satisfied with the safe mediocrity of his life, has a piece of work to do on Christmas Eve that is greater than any task he has ever faced. His strength, character, and fidelity are tested, not just by the danger and labour of his calling, but by the risk of knocking on someone’s door. O’Flaherty’s novella-length story “The Hardest Christmas Ever” conveys his quandary with sensitivity, humour, and not a little suspense.

The other six stories reflect O’Flaherty’s experiences as outport boy, teacher, politician, and scholar. All told, this new collection will, it is hoped, jog the brain, lift the spirit, and touch the heart of all readers.

Award-winning Newfoundland author Patrick O’Flaherty has published fifteen books, His memoir, Paddy Boy, was published by Pottersfield in 2015. He lives in St. John’s.
