Samenvatting

''An easy, cozy and fun read that will play at your heartstrings and leave you wanting more, about an old and emotionally-broken introvert, a nine-year-old next-door neighbour and the power found through their forced friendship.'' Robert S. -Montreal, CanadaOnce an amusing extrovert with a reputation as a prankster, Mr. Rosen is entering his senior years as a stoic, thirty-year converted introvert who hates change, has little to no interest in people and is more than content to have his wife sit in the navigator's seat of his life. Since becoming a practising introvert, there have been almost no changes in his life, and for the few that there were, his wife had walked him through them, including the recent move to a much smaller home in a lower/middle-class neighbourhood where he lives directly next door to a racist whose nine-year-old son addresses him as Mr. Jew.Mr. Rosen had seen the move coming, and he is very much aware of the enormous change to come sometime in the, hopefully, far off future; though, he refuses to give it any attention. That change will come on slowly and painfully and will eventually force him to chart his own life's route.This heartwarming, feel-good novel offers a rollercoaster ride of emotion as Mr. Rosen's habitual world begins to implode while on a collision course with the chaotic world of an innocent child, its troubled mother and vengeful father.**Five Stars** ''I cried -only to have a smile brought to my face before the tears even dried.'' Carol H.March 13, 2016: The Third Edition of On Herring Cove Road includes a slight expansion of several chapters, an addition to the author's notes and corrections to typographical / grammatical errors.ABOUT THE SERIESThe first of the four novels in the unique, evocative and not-so-nuclear family saga series called Herring Cove Road where a small group of troubled individuals, dealing with their own personal issues, accidentally come together to form a family unit, and then while struggling to maintain it, are forced to deal with its dark results, such as: racism, death, murder, suicide and much more.Taking place primarily in the 70's, with believable characters and mostly situated in several areas of Halifax, Nova Scotia, the series chronicles the actions (and their results) of an old and introverted Jewish man, his doting and take-charge wife, a young and struggling single mother, her naive and lonely son, and a boy streetwise beyond his years.Volume 1) On Herring Cove Road: Mr. Rosen and His 43Lb AnxietyVolume 2) Still on Herring Cove Road: Hickory, Dickory, DeathVolume 3) Off Herring Cove Road: The Problem Being BlueVolume 4) Before Herring Cove Road: Ruth Goldman and the Nincompoop (A Love Story)
