  • I read Where I Belong, by Alan Doyle and thoroughly enjoyed it. My husband is originally from St. John’s, Nfld. so we spent many summers travelling back to visit his parents and other family. His description of places, people and just the way he “talks” is so familiar to us. I come from a large family myself….born in Truro, Nova Scotia and music was always our source of entertainment. Fiddles, guitars and singing not to mention dancing was what kept us entertained at home ! Would love to see Mr. Doyle write another book …I’m sure there must be another one in the fella!
