She decided to give up swordfishing and move back to her island home, Isle au Haut, Maine, where 30 of the 70 island residents are relatives. She wanted to settle down, become a lobsterman--but the lobsters don't cooperate--well, this is her story, a story for anyone who loves boats and the ocean, everyone who has reached a crossraods in life, and everyone who wondered what it would be like to live on a small island. 238 pages. 8 x 5.25 inches.
