Summary
Living amongst lobstermen makes Ruth Thomas who she is, for good and for bad, but it is the random chance of her parentage that may be the deciding factor in what her future will be.
Critique
Great characters and a great setting make this a great book. It's hard not to feel like friends with these eccentric characters and to hope for a sequel. There is a boatload of lobster fishing information and a unique look at island life. Highly recommended reading.
