Abstract:

"After seventeen years at sea, Linda Greenlaw decided it was time to take a bred from being a swordboat captain, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger's The Perfect Storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She felt she needed to return home, to a tiny island seven miles off the Maine coast with a population of seventy year-round residents, thirty of whom are her relatives. She would pursue a sumpler life; move back in with her parents; become a professional lobsterman; and find a man and settle down. But almost none of this works out as planned, and soon she is forced to reevaluate everything she thought she knew about life, luck, and lobsters." -- back cover.
