Old Broad Road by Phyllis L Humby
Sylvia Kramer flees two thousand miles from home and switches out her Jimmy Choo’s for rubber boots. She stubbornly adapts to the unique culture and dialect of Newfoundland, embracing diverse friends and east coast delicacies. In a psychological roller coaster of events, she finally reconciles with her estranged family when a brutal assault shatters her spirit and plunges her back into depression. Unorthodox coping mechanisms aid in her recovery, but it will take more than out-of-body experiences and superstitious tattoos to heal the damage.

Tina Crossfield –
Old Broad Road was an Atlantic Books Staff Pick for Fall Fiction 2021.
Here’s their review: “Before the thrill, Humby reels us in, cradles us. Then thrusts us into the hard parts. This change of pace represents real-life trauma and creates a powerful reading experience. Humby expertly explores the culture shock of coming from Toronto to Newfoundland, reinforcing the cruciality of adaptation and resilience.”
