“Mary Rose Donnelly … has crafted a poetic and, at times, surprisingly pithy first novel that will transport you to the shores of Cobequid Bay, N.S.” (Canadian Living)
“With intriguing characters, an engaging writing style and a plot rich with surprising developments, Donnelly’s first novel kept this reader turning pages into the early hours of the morning. Great Village, in my opinion, is a great novel by a gifted writer.” (Atlantic Books Today 2017-06-13)
“A rich, resonating and melancholy narrative that copies the local tides in its ebb and flow.” (Truro Daily News)
“[Donnelly is] a master storyteller who, in Great Village, weaves effortlessly, to and fro, across the 20th century, binding art, literature, the natural world and human nature together into a tale that sparkles like sunlight on the waves of Cobequid Bay.” (Saint John Telegraph-Journal)
