Book sounded interesting even though written in 1920. It is about a fishing community where the woman are the ones that stay on the land while husbands go off to sea.
Lots of small town drama...one young man comes back after an injury and he doesn't have much to look forward to, his girl is still there and doesn't care for what condition he's in but he feels sorry for himself.
He's sold everything they can, he and his mother....he learned no trade, just the sea. Oliver is desperate. His sea chest is the answer to get him back in the groove and to prove to himself he can earn a living...
Abandoned Norway ship they demolish and get paid to do it with 2 others that helped. Petra returns with the gold ring he had given her-they marry and have a child and he goes out daily to the sea to get a catch and sells it locally. His mother lives with them and she learns why Petra had returned...
Through the years he wonders how he has a child with blue eyes when he questions his wife...loved hearing of the steamship industry.
I received this book from National Library Service for my BARD (Braille Audio Reading Device).
