Publisher's Summary

When 80-year-old Rove MacNee sets about to tell his life's story, he begins a coming-of-age narrative that takes place in the small gulf-coast town of Fairhope, Alabama. The son of an alcoholic captain, Rove finds peace casting his fishing net into the sea, but soon faces the crossroads of his life.

"Brewer's fans will enjoy his graceful crafting of characters and the budding romance between Rove and Anna Pearl, a schoolmate with a 'fire-bearing spirit.'" (Publishers Weekly)

made me miss the good old days

I happen to live in the area that this author writes about in this book. I was deeply entranced with the description of the local area as it was presented. Very accurate. Many a day went by that I listened to the book and was at the actual site described in the book. This was a very honest book about life in the south during the time period. I felt as if I had been transported back in time and could imagine the young children casting nets along the Fairhope pier as one of the characters in the novel. I highly recommend this book for those who long for a time when things were simpler, slower and safer for you children. The only danger was from inside the family itself.
Oh, there were other dangers, like the war and the Nazi paranoia, but overall it was mostly internal struggles that created tension in this book.
