The Thin Place by Cole Hayley

The damage of resettlement to rural Newfoundland has been well documented, but the trauma felt within family units of those who had to go through the process, and the generational strain since, has not been as openly discussed. The Thin Place exists squarely in the latter, as Terra and her family are lost at sea in their saltbox house, where their one-hour trek across the bay has turned into a lazy river through purgatory.
