Leaving Home tells the story of the Mercers, a Newfoundland family that has lost its way after emigrating.

Rounding out the trilogy is the prequel, Salt-Water Moon, focusing on Mary, a fierce teenager with "steel in her heart." Brilliantly blending comedy and tragedy, these important realist plays appear for the first time together in this illustrated edition, with a new introduction by the author and a foreword by Arthur Schultz.
