Beautiful writing with thought provoking images all tied up in a wonderful story. I found myself rereading lines just to taste the words again. I loved her world she created there in Maine so much, I spent the rest of the day day dreaming about visiting there just to see the sea and fishermen for myself.

She has the coolest way of wording things. Imagine the refreshing honesty of Sarah Plain and Tall, but with modern eloquence meshed with laughter that both touches the soul and lightens the heart.

The characters are rich and endearing, from the best friend that was so ugly as a child that the church matrons prayed for the poor dear, to the Jacks, a trio of elderly salt sailors that would have gotten along perfectly with Statler and Woldorf of the Muppets--unless the subject of politics came up, then there'd be blood in the water.

One of the best books I've read in years.
