Biography & Memoir • 7 hrs. • Unabridged • © 2002

In this follow-up to the author's bestseller, THE HUNGRY OCEAN, about her life as a swordfishing boat captain, Greenlaw has returned to her native Isle au Haut, Maine, to live with her parents, fish for lobster with her father as sternman, and hope for a chance to marry and start a family. Since the population of the island is 47 total, she is aware that the plan may have its flaws, but she gives us the year as it comes, making it vivid, salty, and real, a pleasure to read about if not to live through. Like many untrained readers, Greenlaw often rushes her words, but the account is so personal it's still a plus to have it in her own voice. B.G.
