Several historic events took place in Newfoundland in the earlier part of the 20th century. The first successful transatlantic flight lifted off from this island in June 14, 1919. In 1925, women of the region received the right to vote. In the same illustrious era, a young girl is about to embark on a journey that will irrevocably change her life and reshape the future of her family. Heather Randell shares a glimpse of her mother’s struggles and triumphs during 20th century Newfoundland in “Mom's Saga”.
Randell’s previous book, “Mom’s Stories”, follows the odyssey of her mother, Salome, from the isolation of a rural community to the strangeness of Grand Falls, Newfoundland, a town flourishing in industrialization. After the journey that took her across an icy wasteland, Salome finds herself in a new and completely different life. “Mom's Saga” reveals how the young girl transitions to adapt in an unfamiliar place. From a complete stranger, Salome becomes a tenacious girl who claims and defends her rights and freedom and a woman who has accepted the challenge of starting a life of her own. As one challenge and opportunity unfolds after another, Salome reveals what it means to be brave and the cost of pursuing one’s dreams.
Suffused with the spirit of the times, “Mom's Saga” is more than a biographical account of a woman’s travels, struggles and accomplishments; it is a celebration of a life well-lived and the inspiring heritage that a great woman left behind.
