From the Publisher:

"A powerful piece of work...a tremendous story."- The Washington Post Book World

"Tells us more about ourselves than a thousand constitutional conferences."-Halifax Mail Star

From the Inside Flap:

Set against a vived backdrop of a world at war, Burden of Desire opens with a cataclysmic explosions that provides the novel's extraordinary central metaphor. The blast and its aftermath, which devastates Halifax, Nova Scotia, in 1917, rocks the lives of the three major characters, and ensures that the world as they know it will never be the same again.

Brilliantly blending suspense and eroticism with rich historical detail, Robert MacNeil sets the stage for one of the most provocative tales of desire and obsession to be found in recent fiction. Magnificent in scope, Burden of Desire is work of rare emotional power in which acts of love and war come vividly and sensually to life.
