Linda Greenlaw has been on my reading list for quite some time now- I had wanted to read "Lobster Chronicles" but I found "Seaworthy" when I was browsing in a bookstore.
Her writing is so "matter-of-fact" which makes the reading easy and engaging, you follow as if she were recounting the story at your dining room table.
I also really enjoyed that although this is a story of a female captain in a male-dominated world, she never once made it about that. Her only struggle that she emphasized was that of her age- which she expressed through all of her crew members, a group of older-fishing-misfits. This is a true statement of feminism- by not recognizing the commonly defined roles of women, Greenlaw created an equal environment.

ANYWAY, I loved it and I can't wait to read something else by her!
