Publisher Description

The "wonderful first novel about life, love, and lobster fishing" (USA Today) from the #1 bestselling author of Eat Pray Love, Big Magic and City of Girls

Off the coast of Maine, Ruth Thomas is born into a feud fought for generations by two groups of local lobstermen over fishing rights for the waters that lie between their respective islands. At eighteen, she has returned from boarding school-smart as a whip, feisty, and irredeemably unromantic-determined to throw over her education and join the "stern men"working the lobster boats. Gilbert utterly captures the American spirit through an unforgettable heroine who is destined for greatness-and love-despite herself in this the critically acclaimed debut.

Up and down

Alas, I wanted to love this book more. At times, classic Gilbert; the dialogue absolutely captures that vapid, isanely repetitive, lobstercentic Maine island life, but too often that incessant small town dullness was just numbing.

So tedious

I could not finish this book. Conversation with no point. I have loved other Elizabeth Gilbert books,but not this one. Depressing.
