Times are tough in the fictional New England town of Rosaline. The seas are overfished; the reconstruction of an antique schooner, the Shardon Rose, forces the fishermen off the piers; and the government announces an Emergency Buyback Package, which encourages fishermen to scuttle their boats and quit the business. Struggling to make it are the men of the Pearl, a fishing vessel owned by Warren Fitz and crewed in part by his son, John, and John's best friend, Chris Albin. Pride-bound, Warren Fitz is loathe to take "The Package," so John prodded by Chris, a longtime but functioning junkie tries to run drugs from one of the French islands off the coast of Newfoundland. It's here, as Chalfoun sets her characters on a collision course, that the novel's slowly churning engine kicks in and builds real, satisfying momentum. (670)

Quality Paperback Club 1996 Softcover Very Good 
Large trade softcover (8.5" tall) , 3 books in one. 805 pages. Very good condition, only light wear overall. Previous owner wrote their first name across one outside edge of pages (RYAN). SMALL CEREMONIES: Judith Gill's world is shaped by the actions of those around her. As a biographer, she spends her days analyzing the minutiae of past lives. As a mother, she is perplexed by her children's developing lives. As a wife, she struggles to sympathize with and support a man who sometimes acts like a stranger. The BOX GARDEN: Charleen Forrest, Judith Gill's sister, is obsessive and hyper-romantic, a poet who no longer writes because ``having given away the well of myself, there is nowhere to go''--except inward.
