face the facts ignorant people
28 March 2004 | by (over the rainbow) – See all my reviews

Believe it or not, this was what it was like. In those times the Newfies were ignorant, poor people, easily manipulated by the monopoly of the St. John's merchants. They lived their entire lives on scraps, poverty and disease stricken whose ancesters can tell you more stories just as estranged that really did happen.

if anyone knows anything about the history of Newfoundland they will apprechiate this story. The story was not overzellius in any respect. People like Lavinia Andrews and Mary Bundle existed in those times. Women were utilized like Mary Bundle (I know another commenter stated that women didn't cook on vessels. Tell that to my ancesters that came to Newfoundland from England fishing off the french coast.) Women were raped, and really had no choice but to allow things to unfold in front of them. They had no rights. Bernice Morgan illustrated the greatest example of the history of Newfoundland in both Random Passage AND Waiting For Time. The only complaint I have about the series is that it didn't stay completely true to the story.

But still didn't stretch far from reality.
