Bitter rivals. Festering animosities. Gossip, innuendo and scandal. And don’t forget the gun. A ragtag group of settlers come to Manitoulin Island in the 1870s with dreams of building a better future. What they find instead is murder. Based on the real-life 1877 killings of two members of one family by two members of another, The Haweaters finally hits bookshelves on August 1, 2020 following a four month delay due to COVID-19. Historical fiction.
