In the late 18th century along a rocky cove in northern Newfoundland, Evered and Ada become orphans. At their ages and in their utter isolation, they wouldn't even know such a word exists nor is there another soul anywhere near enough to help them survive. But this brother and sister do survive having learned just enough from their parents about fishing, gardening, and subsisting. The Innocents is intense, beautifully written and richly imagined. A singular work of fiction in theme and execution. ~ Reviewed by Stan Hynds
