View all copies of this ISBN edition:

The banking schooner Marion set sail from St. Jacques, Newfoundland, bound for St. Pierre, the home base of Captain Pierre Maurice, on June 10, 1915. The vessel and crew were never seen again. Many have speculated that the French captain had made good on his threat to end the life of Captain Ike Jones, but it was never proven.

The Loss of the Marion tells the story from the point of view of Nellie Myles, whose husband and brother-in-law were lost with fifteen other men. It recreates the events leading up to the day of the vessel's final voyage, and follows with Nellie's relentless search for the truth. The result is a rich tapestry of Newfoundland family life, culture, folklore, and seafaring history.

The Loss of the Marion delivers a chilling account of an event that changed the lives of many families . . . and shaped the lives of generations to come.
