‘Life is like the ocean -it is the source of our sustenance, it is who we are, and yet it can kill.” So begins Home to Liza, the story of a Newfoundland woman who lived an extraordinary life. She did not set out to live that life, life came to her. Home to Liza is a love story, a murder mystery, and a rags-to-riches story. Set in an outport community, the story winds its way through Liza’s life as she takes lovers, family, friends and enemies with her. Liza is strong, and yet incredibly vulnerable. All she ever wanted was to be with Billie, and in the end, she is.
