Description: On December 6, 1917, a fully loaded ammunition ship explodes in the harbor of Halifax, Nova Scotia, leveling an entire district, killing 1,800 people and creating a sixty-foot tidal wave. In the ensuing wreckage a diary is found. Written by a young woman who has recorded sexually frank confessions, it becomes an obsession for its finder, a clergyman who tries, with another friend, to discover the identity of its author. Soon the men are swept into a whirlpool of conflicting emotions, as their emotions for the woman and conflicts about their own existing relationships collide. With fine attention to the details of the era and the atmosphere of Atlantic Canada, Burden of Desire beautifully limns the nature of love, loss, and desire.
