The Harbor Master is a seafaring tale of Newfoundland set on the Labrador coast. A reviewer on GoodReads writes, "The Harbor Master is a simple, transparent story somewhat along the lines of G. K. Chesterton's stories -- engrossing and altogether charming. The Newfie dialect in this one might be a challenge for some readers but it's essential in creating the atmosphere."
