“MIRACLES HAPPEN: The Rendell Drover Story”

About the Book...

Miracles Happen is the story of a tragic event that happened in Harbour Grace, Newfoundland and Labrador, in 2010. On August 13, Rendell Drover, a respected fisherman in the community, was injured in an industrial accident that nearly claimed his life.

In this memoir, Rendell’s wife, Janice, recalls in heartbreaking detail the weeks and months that followed. Throughout his recovery, Rendell underwent a series of dangerous medical procedures . . . and lived. Doctors agreed his survival was nothing short of miraculous.

Today, Rendell Drover, known locally as “the big-hearted fisherman from Upper Island Cove,” is alive and well. His story will inspire readers and remind them that, in times of crisis, miracles really can happen.

About the Author...

Janice Marie Drover is the youngest daughter of Harold and Mary (Gosse) Bishop of Spaniard’s Bay.

She grew up in Spaniard’s Bay and attended Holy Redeemer School, and from there she went to high school at Ascension Collegiate in Bay Roberts. She attended St. Columba’s School in Harbour Grace, where she obtained a business and commercial course while working in retail.

Janice married Rendell Drover, son of Albert and Myra (Stone) Drover of Upper Island Cove, on September 24, 1971. The Drovers, a large fishing family, helped Janice obtain employment in several crab plants over the years. For more than twenty years, Janice worked as a fisherperson alongside her husband, Rendell, and their two sons, Shawn and Robin. She did this until August 13, 2010, when Rendell suffered a life-threatening injury.

Janice has spent the past six and a half years helping Rendell recover from his near-death experience.

She and Rendell enjoy spending time with their three grown children and their spouses—Shawn and Lorraine, Robin and Charlene, and Terri Lynn and Gordie. Janice and Rendell have seven grandchildren: Brandon, Noelle, Brianna, Reilly, Shelby, Abby, and Darien.
