Review by: Emma Calin on June 03, 2013 :
A really good story! We don't always make the right choices. We always think we can change people but human nature is very complex. Set in an unforgiving landscape of fittest survival, the human is a fragile and troubled creature. This is a book where the writer clearly knows that small mistakes can hook you in the mouth like a salmon on a merciless steel line. The water is cold for any warm blooded stranger who falls in the struggle. Yet this is the true life for these characters on the fishing grounds of the North. No ice can freeze the heat of desire and no innocence of springtime can un-cry the tears of youthful regret. Set in an awesome savage beauty, the human spirit goes on through real and imagined kisses and wine to find a wider perspective. We are free because love imprisons us. I adored this book for its exploration of this dilemma set in the real lives of real folk. No highfalutin literati posturing but a hand on the winch, a knife in the hand and a pulse in the flesh mix in this story. The style is straightforward without gratuitous flourishes - a bit like ice and a loving kiss. A sexually sophisticated and tension packed story. A good good read!

Review by: Darlene Jones on April 27, 2012 :
I had the good fortune to read this book before it was published and highly recommend it. From the sheltered life in Ontario, Andrea crosses the continent to the rugged world of West Coast British Columbia. This story sucks the reader in with a humorous and intriguing look at the lives of commercial fishermen. The reader is caught in Andrea’s life as her decisions lead her down a path she could never have anticipated. Soon you are sitting on the edge of your chair, tense with worry about Andrea. And the ending!? All I can say is that there had better be a sequel. The mechanics are solid, the imagery vivid and the emotional impact will have you rooting for Andrea.
