After 17 years at sea, Linda Greenlaw – author of the New York Times bestseller The hungry ocean – decided it was time to take a break from being a swordfish captain, the career that earned her a prominent role in Sebastian Junger’s The perfect storm and a portrayal in the subsequent film. She needed to return home, to a tiny island seven miles off the Maine coast with a population of 70 year round residents, 30 of whom are her relatives. She would pursue a simpler 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 re-evaluate everything she thought she knew about life, luck, and lobsters. 238 pages. PB
