Abstract:

"British weather is always unpredictable, but the Spring of 1980 was something else entirely--snow, hail, floods, drought and sometimes the whole ticket ... When the sun finally rose on Stickle Island--six bales of primo marijuana had washed up on shore. Stickle Island follows the islands myriad residents as they come up with a (not entirely agreed upon) plan to form a co-op and use the profit from pot sales to save the islands only ferry, which, thanks to the miserly Prime Minister Margaret Thatcher, has just been placed on the chopping block ... Unfortunately for them, a violent and wildly erratic mainland drug dealer called Carter and his soft-hearted henchman Simp have plans of their own, and they're coming to Stickle to see them through. The islanders must set aside their bitter rivalries and decades long feuds to save the ferry and protect their way of life, navigating the choppy waters of new romances as things grow increasingly, and hilariously, complicated"--Amazon.com.
