For generations, this Scottish fishing community has sent its men to sea to continue the legacy passed down by their fathers. Despite the fact that modern technology now shapes their vessels, family unity and fears of the sovereign sea remain unvarying. Meg Henderson’s Scottish inflection makes a significant impact on the authenticity of this novel. She provides dynamic insight into the women of this village, urging listeners to feel the trepidation they bear as their men--sons, husbands, brothers, and fathers--confront their livelihood. Henderson’s narration provides a comprehensive look at a part of the world where a unique group of people remain surprisingly similar from one generation to the next.
