We all remember Linda Greenlaw from her previous books, her role in The Perfect Storm, and as the pioneering captain of a swordfishing boat. Did you know that she was born in Stamford? From there, her family moved to Maine, where she graduated from Colby College and worked as a cook and deckhand on commercial fishing boats during school breaks.
For nearly 25 years now, Greenlaw has led fishing expeditions around the globe. After being featured in The Perfect Storm, she was prompted to tell her own story, which led to a string of three bestsellers. Her latest is Seaworthy, and it's about renewing her love affair with the ocean after years away...she and a small crew of four go on a swordfishing journey that turns into an ill-fated series of misadventures, including a brief stay in a Canadian jail.
If you've read her earlier books, you'll find a more introspective and mature woman here, one who has stepped back from her life's passion and now eagerly embraces it again. If she's a new author to you, this book puts you squarely on deck -- you'll feel the salt spray, the wet rope between your fingers, the tilt and movement of the boat. It's a true armchair adventure with perspective, both inside and out, and a great way to completely escape into someone else's world. You'll be hooked from page one!
