More Description

John Bemrose's highly acclaimed national bestseller tells the story of a family who slips from fortune's favour in a southwestern Ontario mill town during the mid-1960s. Like his father before him, Alf Walker is a fixer in the local textile mill. When a labour dispute forces him to choose between loyalty to his friends and his own advancement, Alf's actions inadvertently set in motion a series of events that will reverberate far into the future. Meanwhile, Alf's wife, Margaret, must reconcile her middle-class upbringing with her blue-collar reality, as her marriage is undermined by forces she cannot name. And after their eldest son, Joe, falls headlong for a girl he first glimpses on a bridge, the boy finds his world overturned by the passion and uncertainty of young love. At once intimate and epic in scope, "The Island Walkers" follows the Walker family to the very bottom of their night, only to confirm, in the end, life's regenerative power.
