The Seary Line Reviews 


Hon­ourable Men­tion for the 2009 Sun­burst Award
Long-listed for the Relit Award


“[The Seary Line] is a character-driven tale and Lundrigan’s gift is to cre­ate mem­o­rable ones…The char­ac­ters are haunt­ing and evocative…there’s more than enough sus­pense to keep the story mov­ing and the set­tings are great.“
Mar­garet Can­non
The Globe and Mail

“The Seary Line is steeped in her brand of New­found­land Gothic, of char­ac­ters, dilem­mas and set­tings that are tweaked to a pitch of lone­li­ness, defect and calamity all of their own.“
Joan Sul­li­van
The Telegram

“If there is a new wave of New­found­land fic­tion going on, Nicole Lun­dri­gan may be one of its lead­ers… Lun­dri­gan writes about New­found­land the way William Faulkner wrote about the Amer­i­can south.”
Dar­rell Squires
The West­ern Star

“Lun­dri­gan plaits a rich braid of tales, as effort­less to read as it is to believe…richly ren­dered through a crafted style that is never affected or merely ornamental…something extra per­me­ates this novel. It is the bare con­sid­er­a­tion of mem­ory, regret, and how a sin­gle, slipped moment can fix a life.“
Bruce John­son
Atlantic Books Today

“The novel’s great­est strength, and the rea­son to read it, is to expe­ri­ence the lives of such intri­cately wrought char­ac­ters… the detail and affec­tion in Lundrican’s stitches cre­ate a cloth of vivid colour and lin­ger­ing tex­ture.”
Leslie Vryen­hoek

“I was fewer than fifty pages into the book when I real­ized thoughts of Amer­i­can nov­el­ist William Faulkner were dal­ly­ing in my mind … a dandy read, sown with peo­ple and inci­dents as fecund as a freshly plowed field … it’s chock-a-block with double-edged imagery.“
