Publisher Description

Tara Marconi has made her way to “The Rock,” a remote island in Alaska governed by the seasons and the demands of the world of commercial fishing. She hasn’t felt at home in a long while—her mother’s death left her unmoored and created a seemingly insurmountable rift between her and her father. But in the majestic, mysterious, and tough boundary lands of Alaska she begins to work her way up the fishing ladder from hatchery assistant all the way to King crabber. Tara learned discipline from years as a young boxer in Philly, but here she learns anew what it means to work, to connect, and—in buying and fixing up an old tugboat—how to make a home she knows is her own.
