(new edition)

320 pages
Nimbus Publishing

A new edition of this classic work of Atlantic fiction, set on a wild, isolated island off the coast of Nova Scotia.

This classic Nova Scotia novel tells the story of Isabel Jardin, a strong and sensitive woman, and the men in her life-the stoic Matthew Carney, a living legend, the passionate Gregory Skane, and the innocent but infatuated Jim Sargent. Set in the 1920s, The Nymph and the Lamp unfolds against the wild desolation of Marina, a wind-swept island off the coast of Nova Scotia, as the characters come to terms with their personal contradictions and the demands of isolated island life.
