“Red Island -Resettlement Girl”

 Helen Murphy, Barbara O’Keefe, Marion Counsel

  A compilation of recitations, stories and songs.

 Marion Counsel grew up on Red Island in Placentia Bay. She was a teenager when her family resettled to the town of Placentia during the 1960’s Resettlement Program.

 She has written many recitations, stories and songs about these experiences, mainly as a keepsake for her son Michael, but also to help preserve a part of our Newfoundland and Labrador culture - out port living - which is slowly vanishing.

 Marion shares her heart-warming story in a unique and colorful way, with the help of her two friends Helen Murphy and Barbara O’Keefe
