From the Author
I spent the summers of my youth on Murrells Inlet, in the upper part of the Lowcountry of South Carolina, at the tip of Garden City Beach where the mouth of the inlet meets the ocean. We dug for clams in the gooey black mud and caught crabs using hand lines--a piece of string attached to a chicken neck. Mostly, my friends and I raced our johnboats up and down the waterways--skiing and hydrosliding--annoying the weekly renters with our rambunctious behavior.
When the ocean was calm and the fishing reports promising, my father took us deep-sea fishing. We left the dock in the wee hours of the morning in order to make it to the Gulf Stream by sunrise. My favorite part of the trip was hearing the diesel engines rumble to life and vibrate beneath me as I slumbered away in the cabin below. Some days we never got a bite. Other days we returned with a cockpit full of tuna, wahoo, and dolphin.
I wrote this novel in memory of my father, Elbert, who shared his love of the water and taught me how to cook everything we caught.
