Been In the Storm So Long is the story of one man’s journey from the East Coast of Canada to New Orleans and back, from whaler to thief, murder accomplice to father and husband, alive to dead and back (more than once).
In the small Nova Scotia village where he lives, John Healy dreams of whaling. But the young man’s adventure become a long road through the loss of innocence. This is the story of Healy’s life as he navigates an emotional journey fraught with unbearable loss, keeps unspoken truths from those who matter most, and finds redemption when all seems lost, is a story that transcends time. Can John Healy leave what happened in the past where it
belongs, or will it shape his future in ways he can’t possibly imagine?
At once provocative and meditative, Terry Jordan’s new novel is a portrait of a man’s struggle for forgiveness in a world that has forgotten mercy.
