Publisher Comments:

A Narragansett Bay fisherman is obsessed with an unfinished 50-foot boat called SPARTINA. Determined to find the funds to buy her an engine, he takes a foolish risk. But his real test comes when he must weather a storm at sea in order to keep his dream alive.

I have recommended this book to 5 others (men and women) - all who have agreed with me - simply captivating. Great story, great writing, great characters, great sense of the Rhode Island landscape.
